First Thursday speaker series continues.
SR 99 Tunnel Landscaping Goes Back to its Roots
6:00 – 6:30 p.m.
Thursday, July 7
Milepost 31, 211 First Ave. S., Seattle
Admission is free.
While Bertha continues her journey from SODO to South Lake Union, trees, plants, and flowers are already growing at the finish line! Landscape architect, Katey Bean, will talk about the design of the landscape at the tunnel’s north end and how it pays homage to the indigenous landscape that used to exist in this part of Seattle.
Katey is a landscape architect and urban designer who has been working on the North Portal landscape design since 2010. She recently moved from the WSDOT landscape architecture group to HNTB, where she will continue to be involved in large infrastructure projects in and around Seattle.
After the talk, be sure to leave enough time to explore the rest of the First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square. Milepost 31 is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and stays open until 8 pm on First Thursdays. Free parking is available for First Thursday art walk patrons in Pioneer Square.
