Narrows Bridge deficit should be paid with DOD funds
I would like to see a larger segment of the payoff for the Narrows Bridge come out of the Department of Defense’s budget. For a state highway of such national significance, we could use some of our tax dollars right here at home.
I don’t think the initial financing plan went after that federal money, and I’ve always thought that servicing Naval Station Bremerton, Naval Submarine Base Bangor, Naval Undersea Warfare Center Keyport and the Naval Hospital Bremerton with our state highway would be a better, more fair and balanced cost sharing with federal tax dollars.
I’m going to write our Congressional delegation and prompt them to get this bridge better supported from DOD funds, and welcome others joining in. Together our voices register louder.
