CRUISIN’ THE VIADUCT
Jan 13th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

The city and WSDOT apparently expected a calm, orderly shutdown to the Alaskan Way Viaduct at 10 p.m. Friday night.

What happened instead was a big, popular, slow-speed cruisin’ scene. Thousands came to pay their last respects to the doomed scenic waterfront roadway. There were cars, trucks, at least one semi, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians.

It was after 10:25 when crews finally put up the barricades at the Viaduct’s northern on-ramps. The northbound cruise continued for more than another hour.

The official last civilian vehicle on the Viaduct was a stalled car, that had to be pushed by a cop car.
