Seattle City Council statement on
Alaskan Way Viaduct replacement bid submissions

SEATTLE - Seattle City Councilmember Rasmussen and Council President Conlin joined Gov. Chris Gregoire, King County Executive Dow Constantine and many other regional and state leaders this morning as the Governor announced that bids received yesterday for the design and construction of the SR 99 bored tunnel were at or below the contract price limit.

Councilmember Rasmussen, transportation committee chair, issued the following statement:

Receiving two competitive bids for the Alaskan Way Viaduct replacement project is a significant milestone for the City and the region. This announcement today moves this critical public safety and transportation project forward and signifies future local jobs and economic advancement. As the proposals are evaluated and the draft environmental impact statement receives public comment, we look forward to continuing our work with the State, King County, Port of Seattle, community leaders, and stakeholders.

Early review of these bids and the associated at or under budget pricing of construction should put the question of cost-overruns to rest. I applaud Gov. Gregoire, and all the regional partners for their steadfast commitment to this effort, taking advantage of the favorable construction bidding environment that were currently experiencing, and for diligently moving the project forward.
