Judge dismisses Alaskan Way viaduct tunnel lawsuit

A federal judge in Seattle dismissed a lawsuit Friday aimed at stopping construction of a tunnel replacement for the Alaskan Way Viaduct.

Judge John Coughenour said the people who brought the suit in September hadn’t established their standing. In his ruling he said they hadn’t specified how they’d be damaged by the lack of a full environmental-impact statement on all of the viaduct construction projects.
