Microsoft goes strong on 520

Microsoft has started a huge new campaign to get the legislature to (finally) approve moving forward on the 520 bridge. The Seattle PI covered it here

Microsoft even has their own website for the campaign, and a full page newspaper ad. I’m starting to get mail from people about it, and I agree. I have been pushing this project for years. We are very close to taking the next step – approving funding for the eastside projects. We also need to continue to move forward on the westside, making necessary modifications to the westside design within the conditions of the environmental impact statement.

I’ve written about this project in the past – click the “520” link on the tags sidebar to the right for more pieces.

We should be able to move a bill this week.
