The Washington state House has passed a no-new-taxes transportation budget that continues spending on existing big-ticket projects but does not fund new ones.

The $8.8 billion proposal, passed Sunday, includes continued funding for the Alaskan Way Viaduct tunnel project, a replacement bridge for State Route 520 over Lake Washington and high-occupancy lanes on Interstate 5 in Tacoma.

The measure represents a compromise between the House and Senate. It passed by a 72-25 vote.

The budget plan heads next to the Senate, where it is expected to be taken up before this year’s regular session ends Sunday evening.
