Even when I make a promise that I’ll stick to news about the Bay Area, Seattle slips in every once in awhile. Every local knows that trying to get through the city can be quite the struggle bus. With your one-way streets, bus lanes, and constant traffic, making your way through Seattle can be an absolute nightmare. One way to combat that is a gondola being built according to Great Western Pacific – responsible for Pier 57 and The Great Wheel. The gondola would connect the waterfront to the Convention Center via Union Street and would run a half of a mile.
Not only do I find the idea to be kind of a pretty design, but it would also eliminate so many barriers that Seattle locals have to fight through on a daily basis like traffic and parking. For more details on the plan, click here.
