State Transportation Funding & West Seattle Bridge Trail

This received today from our West Seattle state Representative Joe Fitzgibbons. Thank you, Joe!

“Thanks for reaching out to let me know how important transportation safety programs are for you and for our state.  The House passed a transportation package today that includes an amendment I sponsored to put $16 million in pedestrian and bicycle safety projects around the state.

“One of the projects is an investment of $500,000 that will be provided to make improvements to the West Seattle Bridge Trail, making this commonly used, but dangerous, route safer and more accessible for the many folks who right now are risking their lives using this trail.

“While it is unclear what will happen to this bill in the Senate, I will keep working towards its final passage and try to hold on to the pedestrian and bicycle safety funding that is in the current transportation package.

“Thanks again for contacting me and please feel free to keep in touch with your questions and concerns.

“Take care,”

Joe Fitzgibbon
State Representative
