The C is for Crank

Alaskan Way Viaduct Closed

By Erica C. Barnett November 22, 2010

Just got notice that the Seattle Police Department is closing down the Alaskan Way Viaduct in both directions due to "icy conditions."

I've pointed out before that the last time the city shut down the viaduct, after the 2001 Nisqually Earthquake, people were smart enough to figure out other ways to reach their destinations.

Commenters countered that people are not, in fact, that smart.

Let the controlled experiment begin.
