AN ORDINANCE relating to the reconstruction of Alaskan Way and the construction of Elliott Way surface street improvements necessary as part of the State of Washington’s State Route 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program; authorizing the Mayor or the Mayor’s designee to execute an Agreement with the State of Washington whereby the State will fund the construction of those improvements by The City of Seattle; and ratifying and confirming certain prior acts.

WHEREAS, the State of Washington (State), The City of Seattle (City), and King County (collectively, the Parties), by Letter of Agreement dated January 13, 2009, committed those Parties to an overall plan to replace the aging Alaskan Way Viaduct with a new deep bored tunnel, including a necessary series of improvements to city streets and the city waterfront. The letter allocated responsibility to the State for providing a surface connection from approximately Yesler Way to Elliott Avenue; and

WHEREAS, the State Legislature endorsed the deep bored tunnel in 2009 as the preferred alternative and authorized funding for the State's responsibilities of the Alaskan Way Viaduct and Seawall Replacement Program (Program); and

WHEREAS, the State and City entered into agreement GCA 6366 in October 2009, confirming State responsibility for, among other things, funding the design and construction of a surface street from S. King Street along Alaskan Way to Elliott and Western Avenues, ending at Battery Street, including replacement of the Marion Street pedestrian overpass and reconstruction of the Lenora Street pedestrian overpass, as part of the Program; and

WHEREAS, in April 2010, the State and Port of Seattle entered into agreement GCA 6444 for the SR 99 tunnel project in recognition of the economic importance of an efficient SR 99 roadway network with complementary system improvements for the effective movement of freight and goods locally, nationally, and internationally; and

WHEREAS, the Parties entered into agreement GCA 6486 in April 2011, which further confirmed the State's responsibility for funding design and construction of a relocated surface street within the Alaskan Way right-of-way from South King Street to Pine Street, a new surface street from the intersection of Pine Street and Alaskan Way to Battery Street, and connecting Alaskan Way to Elliott and Western Avenues, and which recognized that the additional details of that obligation would be subject to a future agreement; and

WHEREAS, the Parties entered into agreement GCB 1308 in April 2013, in which the State provided funding to the City to implement the environmental documentation, design, and right-of-way phases of a surface street from S. King Street along Alaskan Way to Elliott and Western Avenues, ending at Battery Street, including replacement of the Marion Street pedestrian overpass and reconstruction of the Lenora Street pedestrian overpass; and

WHEREAS, the Parties entered into a funding commitment on January 12, 2017, which clarified the State’s funding obligation for new Alaskan Way improvements consistent with GCB 1308, and any amendments thereto, which were presented in the October 2016 jointly held Cost Estimate Validation Process (CEVP) workshop, which established an anticipated cost range for the State’s funding obligation; and

WHEREAS, the January 12, 2017 funding commitment also established a framework for the development and delivery of GCA 1271, attached to this ordinance as Attachment 1; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY OF SEATTLE AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1. The Mayor of Seattle or the Mayor’s designee is hereby authorized to execute, for and on behalf of The City of Seattle (City), the “Memorandum of Agreement No. GCA 1271 SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program Funding Agreement Alaskan Way Reconstruction Project,” between the City and the State of Washington, substantially in the form attached to this ordinance as Attachment 1.
