All these guys are doing is giving science a bad name. Anyone who lives in Seattle knows what a croc this is. Does anyone who lives north of downtown really think a trip to SeaTac airport or West Seattle is only going to take 6-10 minutes longer without the viaduct or a tunnel? Maybe at the peak of rush hour, but I seriously doubt that, too. It looks like this study is only considering commute time for people during rush hour getting to work. I cannot believe it is considering travel times during the other 16-18 hours of the day. That or this is another one of those agenda studies done by the green nazis.
