While it is unlikely to yield great moments in photojournalism like the one pictured here from the UW event (yes, that’s CHS disrespecting City Council prez Richard Conlin), Capitol Hill is also going to get an event marking the start of tunneling on our end of the U-Link line. In May, we covered the politician-heavy ceremonial launch of the tunnel boring machines at UW. Sound Transit is marking the tunnel action on Capitol Hill in a different fashion with “behind the red wall” tours of the Broadway station project. More on the U-Link tunneling here and next week when we have more information to share about the Capitol Hill end of things.
Speaking of the Broadway station, City Hall’s planner on the Urban Design Framework for the station area dropped CHS a line asking for community feedback to be sent in by Tuesday, June 7th. Consider it your weekend homework. And remember, feedback can be simple “I approve!” Easy assignment.
