WSDOT Envisions 40-Mile Corridor of Dynamic Tolling Lanes in Puget Sound

Lens reports, “As the central Puget Sound regional population grows in the coming decades, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) envisions a 40-mile long corridor of dynamic tolling lanes on the Eastside to manage the new traffic and provide reliable trips for commuters.” The website adds that HB 2071, which had a House Transportation Committee hearing on February 21, proposes to designate WSDOT’s State Route 167 HOT lanes pilot project “a permanent eligible toll facility.”
