Love the water scenes, particularly the ones from the Lake Union area.

Sitting on the big hill in Gasworks Park and looking out over Lake Union on a warm sunny day... watching the boats cross back and forth and the seaplanes coming in and out... the skyline in the distance reflecting off the water... amazing.

Glorious spot to cover with a lid! Pipe dream of course. It's a block north of the convention center, which does cover the freeway. But this spot would make a great park.

Mhays, I would love to have some lids and parks over I-5. Hopefully this can happen some day.

JHoward, thanks for sharing the pictures!

We need another crossing or two near Yesler Terrace -- maybe a street just south of Yesler (as shown in an early EIS) and a nice flat skybridge from a new elevator/stair tower at Jefferson, meaning an easy stroll vs. three blocks of very steep hill.

From the photo, I'd start a block north with a full-block fill-in except that little residential tower. It's a block from the convention center so air flow wouldn't be an issue. It's a huge pedestrian commuting route to our densest census tracts. With the grade change they could do a mid-block skybridge over Boren to the roof of the proposed convention center annex which could wrap around to a flat connection at Pine and a hillclimb to Olive. This is a rare chance for a sizeable park (three acres?) in what's becoming a very dense area on all sides.

Denny should have a sidewalk on the north side, of course. It's a crime that it doesn't already. A new skybridge could parallel the existing bridge and add 10' maybe. Or they could go big and give it a park, maybe 50' or even 300' wide. It would get tons of use.

And a skybridge at least is badly needed in the Thomas/Harrison/Republican area. Around Republican there's some excess room for structural supports for something big. At Thomas they might have to keep it to a basic skybridge though I'm purely guessing.

The go past my home and work. Normally I despise anyone with a blaring car stereo. But for tourists....I'm fine with them.

Thanks for the tourism!

And what is glorious about that overpass?
