It’s been a few years since the city started to demolish the double-decker From The Atlantic Alaskan Way Viaduct that severs downtown from Elliott Bay.

But Seattle is already making progress on the multi-part, billion-dollar waterfront plan that will recapture acres of prime area that have lived in the shadows of the road for half a century.
