My seatmate Rep. Deb Eddy (D-48) is hosting a forum on the design process for 520 tomorrow night (Tuesday Oct. 6) at 7:00 PM at Bellevue City Hall. She’ll have DOT people there with fabulous maps, timelines, etc. It’s her event, but I expect we’ll have a lively conversation. Here’s what Deb said about the agenda:
Our purpose is to review the various “projects” involving SR520 (which includes the tolling work and pontoon construction in addition to remaining design issues, all kind of going on parallel tracks right now), next steps and timelines. While working with eastside chambers, cities and other civic groups is important, it’s also important for us legislators to facilitate these forums, community you’all-comes, which allow us to talk about issues that are outside WSDOT’s purview or authority.
I am sorry about the late notice – I have just got my website/email system back up.
