DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT FOR THE DOWNTOWN SEATTLE TRANSIT PROJECT

The environmental impact statement evaluates proposed solutions to transit congestion in the Seattle Central Business District. In addition to discussing existing conditions and 1990 "No-Action" conditions, four basic "action" alternatives (some of which have several options) are addressed: two Transportation System Management options, one Nonintercept Mall option, six Mall with transit Center options, and three Tunnel options. The document describes these alternatives and evaluates the probable social, economic and physical environmental impacts associated with the project. A Metro Council preferred alternative for preliminary engineering consisting of an electric-only transit tunnel with a circulation system and surface improvements is also described.
