Development will worsen traffic trouble | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

Our city council must deal with the traffic problem that exists at High School Road and the highway. The city’s infrastructure will not support the ferry traffic and local traffic now, let alone in the future when the Lumbermen’s site becomes a high-volume traffic mall.

Any traffic study paid for by the mall developer which minimizes this gridlock situation is suspect. Accommodating business not yet here belies the duty owed to existing businesses and citizens already here.

The state would love to create a four-lane highway and two bridges. We could be like Mercer Island — divided by a freeway with lots of overpasses.
