“Expanded” park and ride in White Center and Burien, under one of two newly released Viaduct scenarios
At West Seattle Blog, we have running coverage (see it here) from the briefing at which the two “finalist” scenarios for the Alaskan Way Viaduct central waterfront section have just been unveiled to state, county, and city leaders. At least one of the scenarios also includes: “Park and rides would be expanded in Burien, White Center, and Shoreline.” Much more information to come. ADDED 4:21 PM: The “expanded park and ride” for White Center is mentioned in BOTH scenarios that now are under active consideration – “surface/transit” and “elevated bypass.”

WA DOT’s document shows Park & Ride expansions for both Burien and White Center for both scenarios.
However, I am wondering, for Burien, if they are just counting the current expansion of Burien Park & Ride that is being built right now.
It is good to see all the emphasis on transit in these options. I can remember when the viaduct debate first started, it was just focused on what to build–tunnel, another elevated, etc.–with little or no mention of transit improvements to go with it.
