Exit 133 is reporting (here) that the state is considering cutting the Vashon Island-Point Defiance ferry due to the budget crisis. Although the move might make life in our neighborhoods quieter, the traffic reduction would negatively impact our retail shops.
Any thoughts or concerns? Would this mean that Pearl loses its state highway designation (and state funding)? Would that mean increased maintenance costs for Ruston? Is a quiet neighborhood more important than busy stores?
