King County hosts transportation town hall tonight
June 19, 2013
NEW — 6 a.m. June 19, 2013
The public is invited to an open house and town hall meeting June 19 with elected leaders from cities and the county to learn more about critical infrastructure needs for roads, bridges, highways and transit service.
The state Legislature continues to seek common ground on transportation funding. Without a solution, cuts loom for local roads, bridges and Metro bus service – potentially worsening congestion and delaying improvements needed to keep the region moving, according to a press release from the county.
An open house and comment period is from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., followed by a moderated panel discussion from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Bellevue City Hall, 450 110th Ave. N.E.
Elected leaders from Bellevue, Auburn, Kenmore, Kirkland, Mercer Island, Sammamish and King County are expected to speak.
Send questions to the panel by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or through Twitter to @kcroads or @kcmetrobus. Join the conversation on Twitter using #TransFuture.
The meeting is co-hosted by the Sound Cities Association, the city of Bellevue and King County.
