City Take That, Tim Eyman (and Dino Rossi)
posted by November 6 at 10:38 AMon
Now that Tim Eyman’s proposal to prohibit tolling on I-90 to pay for a new 520 bridge and Dino Rossi’s proposal to build a massive new eight-lane 520 replacement have gone down in flames, the reality-based community is getting together to talk about how to actually pay for the damn thing. On Monday in Redmond, the 520 Tolling Implementation Committee will release the latest results from its ongoing evaluation of tolling across Lake Washington at Redmond City Hall, from 3 to 5 pm (info about the options available here). Also, all next week, they’ll be holding open houses on the various proposals; a list of times and locations is below the jump. The tolling plan is still a work in progress, but it’s nice to know that the nightmare scenario—a huge new bridge proposal with no money to pay for it—is off the table.
