A SURVEY OF MASS TRANSIT ALTERNATIVES TO INTERSTATE 90

Attempts to complete the Interstate Highway 90 (I-90) project across Lake Washington have been frustrated by legal and public controversy. The 1973 Federal-Aid Highway act added a new policy for local officials: To withdraw an interstate segment from the nationwide Interstate System and substitute a mass transit project in the same urbanized area. The report deals with mass transit substitution alternatives to I-90. Its purpose is to respond to the desire of local officials to learn more about the available transit opportunities to assist them in a decision to withdraw and substitute, or not. This report describes five alternative concepts for transit investments to serve the region with specific project options within each alternative.
