    For months now, traffic going to and coming from Washington State Ferries has gone down Alaskan Way and done various U-turns and other maneuvers to get to and from the ferry dock. Now a driver simply makes a left or right turn, or can head directly down or up Yesler Way. By all accounts the seawall is a massive project, and it has temporarily shut down some tourism oriented businesses that are being compensated for nine months as they won't be generating any revenue while cut off from pedestrian traffic.
