Re: "No fast relief for I-5 traffic nightmare" (TNT, 5-18).
Over the 37 years I have lived in Pierce County, I have read dozens of news articles about how just one more lane, or two, on the I-5 corridor will fix the traffic problems in the area. When will those in charge of funding transportation realize that well run public transportation needs to be funded and may actually decrease the number of cars on the road?
It may take time to build commuter train infrastructure but it is worth it in the long run. Providing good, frequent commuter trains and having dedicated bus lanes would truly help the traffic congestion.
