The West Seattle Herald details the completion of the E Marginal Way grade separation project:

Port of Seattle Commissioner John Creighton said the project was first conceived in the 90s, although they did not actually break ground until 2007.

“This project is an important piece of infrastructure for the port,” he said. “It will make it easier to move commerce through our harbor ... and raising the roadway over the railroad tracks improves safety and efficiency and eliminates idling by cars and trucks waiting for trains to clear the intersection, and so it offers environmental benefits as well.”

The port estimated 270 hours of daily traffic delays at railroad tracks in the area in 2010.

Visited the the Panama Canal last week with a Washington delegation, including a fellow commissioner from Tacoma, Clare Petrich.

Despite all the hoopla about the widening of the Panama Canal, that threat to our business is negligible compared to the damage Seattle & Tacoma do to each other through encouraging a race to the bottom in Puget Sound. Hopefully we will be able to forge more local cooperation in the months ahead.

This Geekwire post does a great job of explaining the Seatac Airport “Experience the City of Music,” an initiative set to bring the sounds of Northwest artists and the spirit of our music scene to Sea-Tac’s busy halls:

One day in 2008, Port Commissioner John Creighton and Seattle Office of Film and Music Director James Keblas landed in Austin for the Seattle Chamber’s Intercity Study Mission. Noting how that city marks its musical heritage with exhibits throughout the airport, Creighton turned to Keblas and asked, “Why don’t we have something like this in Seattle?”
