Viaduct for Dummies: Yes! You Missed the Only Exit! and Other News From the SoDo Coaster

Feeling a little cocky of late, now that everything's totally back to normal down here in SoDo (the new "slow normal," that is), so today I actually took a meeting in the office, inviting an uninitated reporter to drive southbound through the SoDo Coaster to our Viaduct-adjacent office.

That was mean.

Right about meeting time, I got an email, subject line: "Got Messed Up on the Viaduct." By which she meant "Am now being funnelled helplessly to West Seattle." Read more »

Viaduct for Dummies: When Will the Rest of That Thing Come Down?

SR99 Route into Seattle

Today's VFD update: A response to the random question from the back seat this morning as we weasled our way onto the Viaduct in SoDo. "I thought the Viaduct was coming down. So why are we still getting on it?"
