The Washington State Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration are conducting an additional 30-day public scoping period Oct. 7 to Nov. 6, as part of the proposed I-90 Tolling Project Environmental Impact Statement.
The scoping period includes public meetings in Bellevue, Mercer Island and Seattle:
- 4 – 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, Bellevue College cafeteria, 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E., Bellevue
- 4:30 – 8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21, Mercer Island High School commons, 9100 S.E. 42nd St., Mercer Island

At the first public meeting in Bellevue today, media can listen to Craig Stone, WSDOT assistant secretary, Toll Division, discuss project background, what the agency heard from outreach earlier this year and how WSDOT and FHWA developed the range of alternatives. Stone will also give an overview of the meeting format and public comment process.
At each meeting the public will have a chance to learn more about the proposal, ask questions and provide comments to WSDOT and FHWA officials.
