ST3 is not the solution to our congestion

Last week’s ST3 letter (“Don’t defund ST3”) failed to mention one important fact: congestion is projected to increase 20 percent as ST3 will serve only 3 percent. The total costs will far exceed the budget of $59 billion. There are already early reports of funding shortages due to real estate inflation and design changes.

ST3 kills any chance of solving Puget Sound’s congestion. We need a comprehensive system that will serve the entire region, not another inaccessible route paralleling I-5. The taxing authority for this project significantly cripples all other efforts for a multitude of needs.

How about reconsideration of the question?
