The current proposal to replace the 520 bridge would add two new lanes, for a total of six. The two new lanes would be HOV lanes, used by multi-passenger cars and buses.

Neighbors around the Montlake area, however, have suggested the new lanes should be used by transit -- buses only in the short term and light rail eventually.

The Montlake community's concern is the number of additional cars HOV lanes would bring to their neighborhood. Almost everyone agrees, it will be some time before light rail will come to the 520 bridge. But what do you think? HOV lanes or light rail?
