The State Dept. of Transportation proposes spending $2 million to open
some HOV lanes to all drivers every night. The City of Seattle opposes
spending $2 million on something which provides little or no congestion
relief in the short term and harms the viability of the HOV system in
the long term.

If you have an opinion for or against this proposal, WSDOT would like to
hear from you by Tues. 1/7/03.

Thank you for your consideration. Please let me know if you have any
questions.
