Kent,

Quote:
is that tunnel open now??
Yes the new tunnel is open. They had a running event for the opening and my daughter and I ran through it, along with 23,000 of our closest friends.

Quote:
How does that compare to I5 driving north?
Hwy 99 follows the waterfront through Seattle - you wouldn't take it if you were in a hurry.

Quote:
Does it just bypass downtown?
No - but it does allow better access to the West side of downtown Seattle. The waterfront, Pike Place Market, the downtown area in general....

Quote:
Am I wrong that years ago there where caverns under Seattle?
Seattle was build on top of the old streets - the Denny Regrade is a good example.

Is that disrupted by this new tunnel?
No, the tunnel is just North of downtown Seattle. The Seattle Underground is still intact.
