Washington State Legislature Pushes Transportation Projects

Infrastructure projects are popular with Governor Gregoire. The State Legislature is considering two large transportation projects as part of the plan to create more Washington jobs. The two proposals being considered are the Alaska Way Viaduct and the Highway 520 Bridge Project both of which are not effected by shortfall in the state’s operating budget because both projects are funded by gasoline tax and are not dependent upon the state budget (presently in the red). Costs of the two projects range from about 5 to 10 billion dollars.
