Letters to the Editor

Letter | Thinking about tolls

In consideration of tolling on I-90, W. Clark Powell’s letter to the editor on Feb. 1, 2012, was thought-provoking. Yes, tolling on the East Channel Bridge would undoubtedly free up more spaces at MI Park and Ride for use by Islanders.

However, that would mean every time we need to run an errand on the Eastside we would pay a toll. And running into Seattle nearly always requires paid parking and more time. Of course, it would be my hope that Islanders would be exempt from tolling on I-90 since we have no other options except to use I-90, and then a toll on the East Channel Bridge would be ideal.

Let’s hope our City Council can actually negotiate something in our favor for a change!
