Gregoire Ballot Missing Two Choices

Why is Gregoire not offering voters a real choice on the viaduct. Why limit us to just rebuild or build a tunnel?

Seems to me that two great choices include the tear down / reclaim the waterfront option and the tear down and wait to see if traffic adjusts.

The ridiculous thing to me is that during reconstruction, we're going to be without the viaduct for some 4 to 7 years. If we can live without it for that long, can we truly not live without it permanently? Everything we do to adjust in the city during the construction phase might actually be a workable option indefinitely. The future of transportation in this city is public transit, rail, bicycles - not highways.
