TRANSIT: Don’t tear up Stadium Way again

I attended the Sound Transit meeting concerning the proposed six new routes for Link light rail in Tacoma.

To my surprise, three of the six proposals used Stadium Way, now under complete reconstruction at a cost of more than $13 million. I am certain when finished it will be the finest, most up-to-date street in Tacoma.

If one of the three Stadium Way routes is picked, Sound Transit will move in and tear up our street with rails and overhead wires down the center. This should not happen.

My solution is for Sound Transit to give the $50 million of local Regional Transit Authority funds to Pierce Transit to run two of the routes, one north one south, with buses and to improve service and equipment on urban routes.
