The item related to I-405 is scheduled to be at 3:00pm on Wednesday.  You can attend or watch live online at http://wtv.org.  There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the meeting around 4:45pm.  They will also be discussing raising the tolls on SR520 bridge and Tacoma Narrows bridge tolling. Check the schedule.  Note: the letter to WSDOT and WSTC from these legislators helps to make progress toward our goals and the resolutions outlined in out petition.  It is not everything that is needed and it does not have a means of accountability, but it is a step in the right direction.
