significant political

the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle was damaged by an earthquake in 2001, there was a significant political movement to not replace it, including large majorities voting against both replacement options, but the Washington State Department of Transportation voted to allocate funding to build a tunnel to replace the viaduct.

Usage For removable forms, once the concrete has been poured into formwork and has set (or ''cured''), the formwork is ''struck'' or ''stripped'' (removed) to expose the finished concrete. The time between pouring and formwork stripping depends on the job specifications, the cure required, and whether the form is supporting any weight, but is usually at least 24 hours after the pour is completed. For example, the California Department of Transportation requires the forms to be in place for 1–7 days after pouring, Section 90-7 from the Caltrans (California Department of Transportation) Standard Specifications, 2006 while the Washington State Department of Transportation requires the forms to stay in place for 3&nbsp;days with a damp blanket on the outside.
