SEATTLE – The State Route 99 Tunnel Project’s Advisory Committee on Tolling and Traffic Management will meet tomorrow, Sept. 19, to review preliminary toll revenue modeling results, based on toll scenarios discussed in April, and learn how toll revenue would be used. Additional toll scenarios will be tested later this year.

The meeting is from 2 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, in the Seattle Aquarium’s classrooms at 1483 Alaskan Way. The advisory committee, created by the city of Seattle in an agreement with the Washington State Department of Transportation, is charged with exploring ways to reduce traffic diversion due to tunnel tolls and meet the project’s funding goals.

The public is welcome to attend committee meetings to view the information presented and submit written comments. Committee materials are available at www.alaskanwayviaduct.org/ following each meeting.
