SR 520 Legislative Workgroup Final Recommendations Report|
The SR 520 Legislative Workgroup's final recommendations report is now available.
In order to help fund a new, safer SR 520 floating bridge, Gov. Gregoire and the Washington State Legislature approved ESHB 2211 during the 2009 legislative session. This bill authorizes variable tolling on the SR 520 corridor, set to begin in spring 2011.
The bill also created the SR 520 Legislative Workgroup, a group of legislators and transportation officials that presented recommendations on financing and a westside design for the SR 520 corridor to the Governor and Legislature.
A westside subgroup of the workgroup was created to review existing information regarding westside design options considered in the supplemental draft environmental impact statement.
