The Teardown

The Teardown

As Seattle’s viaduct is razed, lives are changed. We tell the stories of those impacted.

As Seattle’s Alaskan Way Viaduct is torn down, the lives of those living in the orbit of the structure are changing radically. In each episode of The Teardown, we follow the continuing 6-month-long demolition of the waterfront highway by spotlighting a different personal impact of the destruction and noting how that experience reflects the larger change happening throughout the region.
