“I am pleased tonight that I-1125 is failing – and that voters recognized the short-sightedness of this initiative. While we are making incredible progress to replace the vulnerable SR 520 floating bridge and the Alaskan Way Viaduct, we have more work to do to improve our transportation infrastructure. Had this initiative passed, it would have greatly inhibited our ability to fund significant road improvement projects. Tonight, it appears we will keep that forward momentum and continue to invest in regional solutions to improve traffic, transit and congestion.”
