Lakewood Dislikes Amtrak Bypass Project

From The News Tribune:

Lakewood is unhappy with the proposal to route Amtrak trains through town as part of the Point Defiance Bypass project. They cite lack of tunnels/overpasses for traffic as part of the problem.

It should be noted however that the main trains to use this line will be the high speed Amtrak Cascades trains which will block intersections less than a minute.

Oh and overpasses and tunnels cost money. What do you think those taxes you vote down go for?
