Coming 2024: Renton Toll Lanes

Renton, if you think you’re getting another general purpose lane… Think again.

RentonTollLanes

If this bothers you, let your 3 legislators know.  That is the only way you will get it changed.  You can call and leave them a message via the legislators’ HOTLINE at 1-800-562-6000 (TTY for Hearing Impaired 1-800-635-9993).
If you really want to express your feelings about it, call each one of your 3 legislators and speak directly to them.  If you don’t know who your legislators are, you can find who they are and their phone numbers here.  Here are their email addresses.  Don’t forget to contact your mayor too.  They meet with state officials who make these decisions.

    Yup. $1.3 Billion ($1.1 B gas tax; $0.2 B toll bond proceeds from tolls from Tukwila to Lynnwood) and no new general purpose lanes, Bellevue to Renton! That is your legislature deciding with Rep. Clibborn, Chair, House Transportation Committee, (D), 41st Leg. District, as the Chief Decider – WSDOT is just the implementer here. And the bond holders for the $0.2 Billion will have covenants that will prohibit future additional capacity increases to preserve the toll revenue to pay off their bonds.

  3. I produced he simplified graphic, but it is taken from the WSDOT plan. Vic Bishop’s comment is also very accurate.

    This is the reason I am leaving the state of Washington. I was born here however, the unruly taxation is going to bankrupt this state. I can’t afford to stay here as we are retired and any increase in salary is peanuts. A great number of my friends are also leaving the state and they made a great more than I did. I am also surprised that this state can toll a Freeway payed mostly by the Federal Government.

    I think if President Trump finds out about this sort of shenanigans he will threaten the state by withdrawing funds for roads, bridges and the like.

    This makes me sick.I guess none of these legislative reps have ever rode in a car with a crying kid or a car sick kid. Do I have to bring someone to suffer with me to ride in these 3+ lanes? 2 of them? Why not 1 lane 2+ and 1 lane 3+? Or just add an extra lane for everyone!!! The carpool lane is never crowded now, why another one? Money money money money money

    Hasn’t anyone heard of rapid transit? I suggest giving 2 lanes to rail, subways or trains.Washington needs to think ahead rather than trying just to catch up. Were to late to exspand roads we need to
    think like our European friends.
