KNKX To Launch New Series Examining Sound Transit Ballot Measure
November's election is fast approaching, and voters can expect a long ballot. As part of our election coverage, knkx will be looking into many candidates and issues around the state and the region.
But starting this week, knkx will focus on Sound Transit Regional Proposition 1, better known as Sound Transit 3. Voters in Pierce, King and Snohomish counties will decide whether to adopt the 25-year, $54 billion transit expansion plan.
Voters have a lot of questions about what this proposal will mean. They want to know if ST3 is the right way to address the region's transportation problems or if it simply costs too much and takes too long.
88.5 will head out on light rail, bus, and commuter rail around the region to break down just what Sound Transit is trying to do. The series is called Sound Transit 3: The $54 Billion Question.
