Future Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels in 1989 on the completion of the I-90 floating bridge:
”It’s a dinosaur,” Greg Nickels, a member of the King County Council, the governing body that covers the Seattle metropolitan area. He said the transportation solutions of the next century would include light rail systems and car pools.
Twenty years later, light rail is about to open, and soon to be extended across that very same bridge.
