Sound Transit has released a draft plan for its sweeping $50-billion, 25-year ballot measure, calling for a second downtown tunnel and light-rail service to Ballard, West Seattle, Issaquah, Everett and Tacoma.
The announcement was met with skepticism from some readers who wondered why the expansion would take decades to finish and why certain communities were left out. Others praised the proposal as “necessary and overdue.”
On Sunday, the editorial board presented six questions that should be addressed, including the tax burden of cumulative transportation projects and what effect at-grade rail and dedicated lanes for bus rapid transit would have on roads.
