History

A brief history of the Tacoma Narrows bridge.
This site is dedicated to the history of Seattle's downtown and waterfront, especially the State Route 99 / Alaskan Way Viaduct corridor. 
The communities along the SR 520 corridor between I-5 and the Eastside boast a rich cultural heritage within a diverse and abundant natural setting. From waterways to highways and canoes to trains, this area has been home to ever-changing communities, neighborhoods, industries and innovations.
