Over 3,300 drivers charged double on I-405 toll lanes 

Anyone who sees suspicious charges on their bill is asked to call WSDOT for a refund

Really?   You know over 3300 drivers were charged double, but you don’t want to auto-refund those people?   You expect people to contact you for a refund?

This is pure laziness, and lack of customer focus.  If you cared about the commuter,  you’d do the work to validate people were refunded.  The company running the tolls should step up.

Look to bottom of ballot to find Community Transit measure 

As more and more people move further out, this is becoming a challenge.   I wish we had more runs that went to Seattle… but alas, it probably won’t happen.

Check out the upcoming measures in Snohomish County.

Voters will need to look to the bottom of the Nov. 3 ballot to find the proposition to raise the sales-tax rate by 0.3 cents per dollar in much of Snohomish County to pay for improvements to Community Transit.

Pave the Mountain Loop! 

This is a beautiful road.   I do get that all traffic funds don’t go towards pure congested areas.. If we need to send some to other areas, this is definitely worthwhile.

There is still fourteen miles of the Mountain Loop Highway along the Sauk River, that is not paved. It has long been a discussion to pave this final portion of the loop between Barlow Pass and the White Chuck River, but funds have been detoured every time. It seemed like a lost hope until the Oso Mudslide of March 22nd 2014
