So Long, Alaskan Way Viaduct

Earlier this evening the state of Washington permanently closed the Alaskan Way Viaduct, a scar on the Seattle waterfront since the early 1950s. Before it closed I went down there to take some pictures. I felt that black and white really captured the lack of color that the waterfront has with this behemoth towering over it.

The northbound lanes on the left and the southbound lanes on the right converge to form a two tier highway just south of the Battery Street Tunnel.
The viaduct stretched for 2.2 miles along the Seattle waterfront.
The viaduct definitely made the waterfront feel neglected.
The Alaska Way Viaduct looms over Alaskan Way.
This tunnel connected 1st Ave with the Seattle Ferry Terminal. It’s a common place for people to hide from the rain.
Underneath the viaduct was lots of extra parking for tourists and visitors as long as you didn’t mind that your car would be crushed in an earthquake.
