BNSF Concerned About Stadium Proposal

From KING-5:

Railway company BNSF is concerned about a proposal to build a new NBA/NHL area South of Safeco Field. The area would also be in the same area as the Port of Seattle served by this railroad. The concern is traffic in the area with three sport facilities would increase and block freight and rail traffic.

They may have a valid concern. On the other hand, it is easier to mitigate for activities concentrated in one area rather than spread out. Also, using the railway to bring fans to and from games could also help with traffic.
