The Seattle Department of Transportation is out with a video simulation of what the Broadway streetcar route will look like when service begins in 2013 — if, as Seattle Transit Blog notes, the Capitol Hill Community Council’s Complete Streetcar Campaign’s vision for the segment is realized.
We’ve embedded the Slog’s generously uploaded version of the video here so as not to clog up teh Internets with the download from the city and then another upload of the same file. Note to SDOT: Put it on YouTube on your own next time.
In the simulation, you can see the pedestrian and bike features championed by the campaign — the “cycle track” is the double-lane green path that follows the streetcar route across Capitol Hill. However, you won’t see another campaign plank in the simulation — not surprisingly given how much study is still needed, but there’s no sign of a north extension to Aloha in the movie.
SDOT has also posted station ‘visualization’ PDFs to their streetcar site. We’ve included the Broadway at Pike station visualization on this post.
