Sen. King is essentially asking for re-design "do over". A new bridge design that would put us out of the federal
funding window for a generation. Over 10 years of study, 160 million dollars spent by both states, expert review
panels, six independent governmental agencies approval, a locally preferred alternative and a federal
record of decision have already been completed. Sen King proposes 10 lanes, BRT instead of LTR and a lift section
among others. All these ideas have evaluated and rejected through an extensive, professional
and local process.
