Rally to show support for SR-509 extension is Monday at State Capitol
The Southwest King County Chamber of Commerce is reporting on its Facebook page that supporters of SR-509 and SR-167 will stage a rally on the steps of the State Capitol in Olympia on Monday, May 20 at 10 a.m.
“Everyone is invited to show support for the Puget Sound Gateway Project, which will complete SR-509 and SR-167 as well as make enhancements to I-5,” reads the announcement. “The Puget Sound Gateway Project, developed by the Washington State Department of Transportation and key stakeholders, would create new freight-dependent jobs and economic development opportunities as well as provide congestion relief for commuters in the Puget Sound.”
The SeaTac City Council recently adopted completion of the SR-509 corridor as a primary goal, as well as including the highway project in its legislative priorities for a number of years.
The Legislative Building is located at 416 Sid Snyder Avenue SW in Olympia. Maps and directions are available online at: www.des.wa.gov/services/facilities/CapitolCampus/Pages/default.aspx.
