Vote no on ST3 | Letter

Light rail on Bellevue Way and 112th Avenue Southeast will be a negative and permanent impact on our neighborhoods. The construction challenges here are immense. These are major arterials to and from downtown Bellevue and will be reduced from four lanes to three reversible lanes for five to seven years.
