CityStream: Farewell to the Viaduct
CityStream: Farewell to the Viaduct

The Alaskan Way Viaduct has snaked along Seattle's waterfront for six decades. Yes, it was noisy, gray and dangerous, but many drivers liked its easy access; and everyone loved the views. Even critics are nostalgic and sad to see it go. Also, we'll backtrack a century and learn why it was imperative to build the roadway. A roadway one man has experienced up close and personal daily. For 11 years he has lived 30 feet from the span, close enough to wave to passing commuters! Host Enrique Cerna shares these stories on, around, and above the Alaskan Way Viaduct.
