City’s action saved upper Duwamish River | Tukwila’s Story

In the postwar years, Tukwila worked to preserve the Duwamish River from industrial expansion by halting the Port of Seattle's plans to further dredge the waterway. The entire reach of the Duwamish River might have looked extremely different if the port's plan had been achieved. Yet, during a time of emerging change it represented a turning point and the start of new growth to Tukwila.
