SEATTLE -- The Washington State Department of Transportation is asking the public to comment about possible tolling on Interstate-90 in a public comment period open between Jan. 22 and Feb. 22.
The state is studying the environmental effects of adding tolls to I-90 between Seattle and Bellevue as a method to help balance traffic across Lake Washington while generating revenue to help complete SR 520 construction, state officials said. The state DOT is asking the public to comment on a range of issues, including traffic impact.
The State Legislature will use the study and comments to decide on whether or not to authorize the project.
Interested individuals can comment online by emailing I90EAComments@wsdot.wa.gov, or in person at one of meetings for public comments will be held later this month:
