|Demo getting started|
In classic Seattle style, it was raining pretty hard for the Viaduct’s last day. It was pretty easy to spot where to go since there were more than a few other people who wanted to say their goodbyes as well.
We trucked up on the onramp and got as close as we could to the big machinery already starting demo.
I have to say it was a pretty neat experience to walk on a roadway that I have driven too many times to count. It’s a way different view.
Even though the Viaduct is pretty ugly it was hard not to get a little bit nostalgic for the thing. It has clearly found its way into the hearts of a great many Seattleites.
I was especially grateful to the city for allowing us the opportunity to give the Viaduct a walking goodbye. And, the best part, the opportunity to take a little piece of it home.
