    Seattle has started building a new pedestrian bridge called “Overlook Walk” that will connect Pike Place Market to the downtown waterfront. The bridge, slated to open in 2025, will stretch above Alaskan Way, with one arm descending to a new waterfront promenade and another arm extending onto the roof of a new Seattle Aquarium pavilion. The project is part of a redevelopment of Seattle’s downtown waterfront after the 2019 removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct.

    With just nine decisions left on the docket, the Supreme Court still has yet to weigh in on major cases about abortion, climate law and immigration. The decisions will likely land this week or next.
