Seattle has tunnel vision

Seattle has poor leadership if they wish to pursue a tunnel beneath the water level of Puget Sound on Alaska Way. Although it has not been clearly defined, there is a newly discovered shear fault line perpendicular to the direction of Alaska Way. If this is true, a shear earthquake could destroy the tunnel and all the motorists within it. I would not use the tunnel.
