Was? I take it they're not going to build it?

ComputerGuy:
They cancled it...voters approved it and then the environmentalists protested it and WSDOT decided not to build the freeway.

Fcexpress80:
This freeway would have linked WA-520 to I-90 along the MLK Jr. Blvd. corridor in Seattle.  Even a freeway geek like myself finds this road to be a little on the excessive side.
