Light Penetrating Surfaces Study – Installation Complete!
Posted: December 6th, 2012 under Councilmember Rasmussen.
Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has successfully installed three test surfaces in the decking of Pier 62/63 as part of the Elliott Bay Seawall Project’s “Light Penetrating Surfaces Study.” These surfaces (steel grating, glass planks, and a light tube) could help increase the amount of natural light reaching the water of Elliott Bay, an important part of a healthy ecosystem.
Each of these surfaces could be installed along the future seawall, and are being compared to understand their effectiveness at transmitting light.
Take a walk to Pier 62/63 this week to see these light penetrating surfaces in action!
