SEATTLE — Pieces of the old State Route 99, now replaced with a tunnel, are available for free.
Last week, Friends of Waterfront Seattle offered small chunks of the roadway at Waterfront Space at 1400 Western Avenue.
Heidi Hughes of Friends of Waterfront Seattle calls it "beautiful Puget Sound aggregate."
Friends of Waterfront Seattle announced on Wednesday that it will continue to offer pieces of the rubble through December.
Their office will be open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. for people to stop by and pick up a piece. They'll be closed Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
"This is an exciting moment for everyone in the Puget Sound region. We're saying goodbye to the Viaduct and hello to Waterfront Park: the community's vision for a reimagined waterfront - a place where all are invited to play, relax, and enjoy in a welcoming, beautiful place," said Hughes.
When people come by, they're encouraged to learn about Seattle's new waterfront, which will transform between now and 2024 with a new Alaskan Way, park space, and a connection between Pike Place Market and Seattle Aquarium with the views people remember from the viaduct.
"You'll start seeing the transformation of our new waterfront and I think people are going to get really excited about it," said Angela Brady of the city's waterfront office.
The viaduct has been gone from the central waterfront for months.
Because demolition contractors have had to work around train schedules, it has taken longer to remove those pieces.
