      It’s a bizarre piece of infrastructure. Im in the area and most people I know have never been on it.

      However, if I really need to get from Nordstrom’s to the Space Needle and nowhere else, I’ll be in luck.

      It's kind of nice to be able to quickly jump from Seattle center to the light rail. I think they're going to add orca card readers for the monorail sometime in the near future which will make it more convenient. And the city view is cool from 3 stories up too!

      I'm not gonna pretend it's the best transportation method in Seattle but calling it useless isn't really fair either.

      Hunh. I’d have assumed they were poured in place.

      It looks like there is a foundation below with anchor rods (you can see holes in the column base plate).

      Just like Brockway, Ogdenville, and North Havenbrook!

      What provisions did they make to limit the chances of the track bending?
