County Executive on release of Environmental Impact Statement for proposed SoDo arena:

King County Executive Dow Constantine today issued the following statement in regard to the city of Seattle's Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposal to build an arena in Sodo.

"It's too soon to tip off or drop the puck, but we're another step closer to bringing the NBA and NHL back to King County.

"There are still many pieces that need to fall into place, but today we've reached another important milestone. It's encouraging to see the environmental analysis that the traffic impacts can be minimized and managed with a number of identified measures to improve circulation. Also, mobility options are abundant at this location, with light rail, Sounder commuter rail, auto and pass anger ferries, numerous bus lines, two interstate freeways, and a state highway."
