The Capitol Hill tunnel made the news again today in both the Tribune and the News. Yesterday I gave a kind of tongue in cheek tribute to the idea so here's a more serious treatment. First, I like the idea because it's big. It's ambitious and sometimes we need that. We like to tinker a lot to give the appearance of solving problems but without the risk (or results). With that said, I think it's the wrong project for the neighborhood. The tunnel would only dump traffic more effectively into the dead end at North Temple and Main. What they need is traffic lights and stop signs that will encourage commuters into actual commuting corridors and discourage mass migration through residential neighborhoods.
