Open houses scheduled on 520 tolls

On my way back to Seattle from Redmond Thursday evening, I watched as Microsoft Connector shuttles streamed by in the carpool lane. Saving time, and, if Highway 520 gets tolls in two years, saving money. In any case, those who want to share their two cents on the tolls will have five opportunities in the coming weeks.

The 520 Tolling Implementation Committee announced this afternoon “a series of five public open houses to gather public feedback on these tolling scenarios, which could impact I-90, SR 522, and other major roadways in the area. All open houses run from 5:00 – 7:30 p.m. with a presentation beginning at 6:00 p.m.”
