New Public Plaza Opens in Downtown Seattle

SEATTLE — Mayor Mike McGinn will officially reopen McGraw Square, a newly improved public plaza in downtown Seattle:

Date: Wednesday, February 9

Time: 8:30 a.m.

Where: Westlake Avenue between Stewart Street and Olive Way, between the Westin Hotel and Westlake Center.

The Seattle Department of Transportation permanently closed this block of Westlake last fall to build a new plaza that improves pedestrian, bike and transit connections to the retail core and the Downtown Transit Tunnel.

This is a Walk Bike Ride sponsored event. Please see the project Web site at www.seattle.gov/transportation/westlakehub_streetcarplaza.htm
