Light Penetrating Surfaces Study – Installation Complete!

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!
