Once again the state Legislature is considering putting toll lanes on I-405.
Two lanes each direction between Lynnwood and Bellevue would be set aside for express toll lanes.
They would likely operate similar to the “hot” lane on Highway 167 in the Kent valley, in which drivers buy stickers that are read electronically along the freeway.
The success of the lanes would be evaluated and the lanes could eventually be extended for the length of I-405 and Highway 167, from Lynnwood to Puyallup.
A similar bill last year did not pass.
