Tunnel vs. Elevated Measure

SEATTLE Council President Nick Licata and Councilmember David J. Della today announced their intent to introduce a ballot measure for a public vote on a tunnel vs. an elevated structure to replace the Alaskan Way Viaduct. Governor Chris Gregoire today said Seattle voters should decide the issue.

Council President Licata said, I believe the ballot measure must list the cost and funding differences between the two options, in accordance with the Governors wishes.

Councilmember Della said, we need to schedule the vote of the citizens of Seattle as quickly as possible. The quicker the vote, the quicker we get it build, reducing the likelihood of casualties.

The measure would appear on the ballot in late March or early April 2007, before the end of the state legislative session.
