520 Financing Options Discussion

The SR 520 Legislative Workgroup will meet on October 20th for a rousing discussion of the financing plan for the bridge.

Tuesday, October 20, 2009, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Sound Transit- Union Station, Ruth Fisher Board Room
401 South Jackson Street, Seattle, WA 98104

The proposed agenda is

  • Overview from WSDOT staff on the current SR 520 funding delivery plan.
  • Discussion of potential additional funding options, including federal reauthorization, potential future local and regional sources, and tolling options.
  • A report out on the Joint Transportation Committee’s state funding study.

Time and location details for these meetings and the remaining meetings scheduled in November and December are available on the SR 520 Legislative Workgroup Web site.

Most of these meetings have been recorded for later display on TVW, and it may make more sense for you to watch it on your computer while you’re doing something productive, like playing Reversi or something.
