The People's Waterfront Coalition is a fast-growing association of organizations and individual citizens who want to prevent the construction of a new highway on the shore of Elliott Bay in Downtown Seattle.
- We don't need a highway.
We can transfer trips now made on the Viaduct to other arterials (and clear traffic for all of us) with a few strategic, lower-cost investments. There are cheaper, simpler, more efficient solutions that take advantage of existing resources.
- We can't afford a megaproject.
Seven to eleven years of construction, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on a mile-long site in the heart of our city. At a cost of billions, unaffordable in every way.
- Elliott Bay needs our help.
This is a once-in-a-century opportunity to create a shoreline downtown that works for residents as well as visitors, native salmon and the marine ecosystems of Puget Sound.
- See what we could have instead of concrete:
A lush, healthy, functioning shore with dense and vibrant development along the edge of smartly planned public space, expressing the deep values of the city we love.
