Nearly everyday for the past three years I’ve driven over the Alaskan Way Viaduct for one reason or another. Work, the airport, whatever. But no matter what the reason, and despite all the worries it will collapse the next time a hummingbird lands on it, I actually like driving on the Viaduct. Especially heading north when you get that great top view of all the buildings in downtown Seattle, and can lookout over the Sound to catch a glimpse of the Olympic Mountains. Last year Hyundai even used a shot from here for a Super Bowl spot (starts at :38). The drive south is also nice as it takes you into SoDo, right past Safeco Field.
So no matter if it collapses tomorrow or they tear it down in a few years, my little slice of the Viaduct can live on forever in this digital world.
