More fun with numbers  
I've heard pundits say that leaving that bridge standing in Minnesota with a score of "50%" is intolerable. Of course, I'm not an expert, so I don't really knowwhat 50% means. Let's put this into perspective with some of our local bridges:
  • SR 99 viaduct (lower): 9%
  • SR 99 viaduct (upper): 16.5%
  • SR 520 Portage Bay: 52.5%
  • SR 99 Lake Union: 53.2%
  • I-5 ship canal: 54%
  • I-90 floating: 71.8%
  • SR 520 Union Bay: 83%
Smaller bridges:
  • South Park: 4%
  • Fremont: 13%
  • Ballard: 31.4%
  • 1st Ave S: 62.4%
  • 12th Ave S: 56%
  • West Seattle Bridge: 80%
Drive safe!
