Uh...the Viaduct will be torn down in three years in someone's fantasy.

First Ed Murray speaks out against the ST2/RTID measure, now Greg Nickels expresses displeasure at RTID's paltry, way-off-in-the-future plans for Seattle. Who woulda thunk it? Electeds actually advocating for the interests of constituents, not just unions and property developers . . ..

Exec. Sims as well could find himself commenting negatively on the Nov. ballot offering. That would be the trifecta.

And as voters it's our duty to vote No and No again and cause some sense to be put back into either ballot measure. Sorry Northgate, no monorail for WS, no light rail for NS.

RTID - it's what's for the slaughterhouse.

Hanging at 5.

Will, the Senate's version of the transportation bill (released yesterday) calls for $1.1 billion from RTID to go to the 520 project. That nag has better legs than you might think.

Ursula @ 6,

Trouble is they like playing games with RTID. Either fund projects all the way, or don't include them. But don't partially fund them on a long list of projects in a HUGE tax package, so that we have to be hit up for even more taxes down the road.

I want to know what things cost and I want to know it now. They're scared to show their hand, because that's how they killed the monorail...
