The Seattle Times reports that demolition of Seattle’s Alaskan Way Viaduct may miss the June 1 target provided by the contractor, Kiewit Infrastructure West. The company told the Times that more than 30 percent of the overall viaduct is currently removed.
After nine weeks of work, the report says, only seven north-south deck pairs from Yesler Way to Pike Street have been demolished, along with the Columbia Street onramp. Another two pairs are partly demolished, leaving 27 deck pairs intact.
An earlier version of the story mistakenly cited the Washington Department of Transportation as the source for this information.
According to WSDOT, demolition remains on track for completion this summer and the timeline for the project remains the same.
