SEATTLE – Representatives from the Washington State Department of Transportation will hold a public input meeting Monday afternoon to hear feedback from drivers and residents about the potential of adding toll lanes to Interstate 90’s floating bridge.

The meeting starts at 4:30 p.m. at Mercer Island High School and is scheduled to last until 8:30 p.m.

The state is looking for nearly $1.5 billion to help complete the Interstate 5 to Medina section of State Road 520.

Traffic on I-90 has increased by 15,000 vehicles a day since tolling began on SR 520 back in 2011. State officials hope to move some of that traffic back onto SR 520 by installing tolls on I-90.

    when the 912 initiative passed…weren't we promised that those gas taxes would pay for just about everything?

    How much $$ has been wasted/spent on consultants?
