SEATTLE (AP) -- The state Transportation Department is opening a public information center Thursday in Seattle to tell how replacing the Alaskan Way Viaduct with a tunnel fits into the history of the Pioneer Square neighborhood.

It's called Milepost 31, for a nearby spot on Highway 99.

The Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce reports (http://is.gd/LGswh3 ) the department developed the center with the local history organization HistoryLink and the Burke Museum at the University of Washington.
