If you’re tired of all this Obama/Clinton back and forth, get ready for a mind-blowing argument against floating bridges, straight from our mail room.
Cleaned up, bolds are mine, not transcribed in all caps as it was written. Read on.
JUST DO IT!
For what to do about the SR 520 hole in the water into which hundreds of millions of tax dollars are gobbled up, lets thing BIG really BIG. The Tacoma Narrows Bridge was built long before it was still strong. Yes, floating bridges are cheaper to build but must be replace more often. [unreadable].
Think BIG! A TOLL BRIDGE BUILT by a private company with tax generating very high end condos built around the towers!
Condo marinas at the base of the towers, broadcast antennae on top of towers, exclusive transit—bus, rail, taxi—lanes, non motorized lanes. Double decker. A multi jurisdiction sheriff’s boats station and multi-jurisdiction and high speed hydrofoil (!!!) fire tug would be stationed there. There are many very expensive houses and boats on Lake Washington accessible by very tiny roads and few fire hydrants.
It is time to stop throwing our tax money on it and make it PAY tax!!!
Up and over spans for the University Bridge on Montlake Bridge could be attached to the bottom of it, smoothing both land moor and marine moor traffic. EVERYBODY WINS. Tourists would arive from all over to see it and it would have a helipad and dirigible tours.
Quick! Someone call the Governor! We have a plan.
