Mysterious Viaduct Demolition

6/21/19 Viaduct demolition viewed from Steinbrueck Park

After the sketch outing downtown, I met Greg by the Pike Place Market, where he was shooting video again of the ongoing demolition of the viaduct. From Steinbrueck Park at the north end of the market, I spotted a crane with its cables attached to one end of a concrete support. A saw was cutting off the end of the support, and water was spraying out near the blades. Just after I finished the sketch, the end piece separated, and the crane hauled the piece away.

It’s a mystery: If the whole thing is coming down anyway, why cut off that piece? I had no one to ask.


  1. Who can figure it out? Just go with the flow. lol Nice sketch.

    1. Indeed! I often draw stuff I have no idea what it is or how it works!
