West Seattle tunnel webinar set for Thursday morning; Sponsored by Washington Business Alliance
A series of online presentations of the concept of an Immersed Tube Tunnel under the Duwamish by retired Civil Engineer Bob Ortblad has been well received by hundreds of people who have taken part and the idea has gotten more press coverage on television and radio since WestsideSeattle.com and our print edition featured it on the front page. Many questions were posed and Ortblad's answers were incorporated into the evolving set of slides. Now he's teamed up with the Washington Business Alliance and found a supporter in Shiv Batra who is Washington State Transportation Commissioner. The newest version of the presentation will be shared Thursday morning, June 25 at 10 in a password protected online meeting.
