The Washington Roundtable applauds state legislators following today’s passage of the final components of a comprehensive package that will invest $16.1 billion in Washington’s transportation system.

“This package has been in development for several years. It required a great deal of collaboration and tireless commitment. We are grateful to Rep. Judy Clibborn and Senator Curtis King, who worked in a bipartisan manner to develop and deliver an agreement that benefits all of Washington,” Mullin said.

Mullin concluded, “Investments in roads and bridges, ferries, multimodal projects and other improvements will lead to billions in economic growth and support job creation.  It will improve safety and efficiency and help protect quality of life. This is a great package for Washington state.”
