The first open house for the viaducts (4-7 Tuesday in the Woodward’s atrium) was packed. Another one today and then Saturday.
Here’s what the proponents are saying that taking down the viaducts will do: create one great street instead of two half-used semi-highways, improve the park space, bring a grand ceremonial street (Georgia) down to the waterfront, provide two more blocks of (city-owned) land around Main to reconstitute housing that was once part of Chinatown, and not block any views.
I know not everyone agrees with that. I heard there were some rumblings of discontent at the open house. The floor is yours.
