520 Toll Increases Speed

From The Seattle Times via KING-5:
http://www.king5.com/news/local/With-toll-520-traffic-light–and-faster-than-limit-136935628.html

The addition of tolls to the SR 520 Bridge have decreased traffic so much that speeds have increased to 65 mph, from 10 or less.

Granted this has increased traffic on I-90 and SR 522, but so far it appears not as much as expected. Furthermore, transit ridership from the Eastside has increased dramatically.

Imagine what will happen when the new bridge is put in place.
