Seahawks fans cause $25,000 damage to Pergola

SEATTLE — Seahawks fans celebrating the Super Bowl victory caused an estimated $25,000 damage to a century-old ornate cast-iron-and-glass archway called the Pergola in Seattle’s Pioneer Square.
A Parks Department spokeswoman, Joelle Hammerstad, says people walking on top of the Pergola broke 20 glass planes. Each of the laminated panes has to be specially made at a cost of $800 or $900. In addition, she said climbers damaged copper flashing, which has to be replaced. And the whole thing will have to be spray-washed and painted to clean up graffiti.
Because it’s an historic structure, the work has to be done to unique specifications.
The Pergola was originally built a century ago to cover an underground restroom. The whole structure was rebuilt after it was knocked down by a truck in 2001.
