Pike Place Market Renovation Is Complete

SEATTLE (CBS Seattle/AP) — The Pike Place Market says a three-year $68 million renovation has been completed on time and on schedule.

While most of the work improved wiring, plumbing, ventilation systems and earthquake safety in the 105-year-old public market, perhaps one of the biggest changes visitors will notice at the Seattle tourist attraction is a doubling in the number of restrooms.

The renovation was funded by a special voter-approved levy, and the market is kicking off a “Thanks to You, Seattle” campaign Friday to display the improvements.
