Putting a lid on I-5 could bring Seattle more green space

Lid I-5 is pushing to create a healthier environment by building more parks, housing and jobs above I-5 through downtown Seattle.

Seattle — Seattle's population is growing and housing is becoming more expensive.

Lid I-5 has a plan to support growth by making better use of the land we already inhibit.

Putting a lid on I-5 could create more room for parks, housing and employment, while also putting a buffer between freeway pollution and the rest of the city.

John Feit joined New Day to go over these plans and encourage other people to get on board with this environmentally friendly progression.
