Transportation ETA April 20 meeting

ETA Members and Friends,
Congestion is the problem.  We can do something about it!

The Expert Review Panel for the ST 3 proposal by Sound Transit held its latest 2 day review session on April 11 and 12.  This is a facilitated panel of 8 eight experts from around the country who were set up by the legislature and appointed by the legislative leadership to ask tough(?) questions of the technical staff of Sound Transit about assumptions, methods, processes, risks, etc. regarding the ST 3 proposal.  Their final report is required prior to Sound Transit Board’s final decisions on the Ballot Issue.  Stay tuned.
