|Seems to me that the main reason why a bridge idea has failed everytime, is that folks want to build the bridge to King County or the Ruston area in Tacoma.
Why not just make it to the Kitsap side? I don't think you would have a huge population boom that would turn it into a Mercer Island like town.
Also, the water, between Vashon and Kitsap, is not nearly as large as between Tacoma/Vashon or King County/Vashon.
I'd like to go over there just to visit sometime, but a 20 dollar charge now is just to steep. Can't imagine living there and having to pay that every day, which is why it seems to me most people who live there work from home or just put up with at least 2 bus rides and a ferry to Seattle.
At least, you wouldn't feel like you're in a prison and if you needed say something like an emergency service to a hospital, you wouldn't have to depend on a helicopter.
If the residents there are that concerned about growth, toll it at least 5 dollars....I'm sure that would discourage some people. But a 5 dollar toll is better than a 20 dollar ferry
