Monorail recall

Fearing the public would vote against the billion-dollar project, transit officials in Orange County, CA recently decided against putting the CenterLine light rail line to a countywide vote. However, Seattle voters might get a chance to weigh in on the monorail: Unless the Seattle Monorail Project is able to derail it, a ballot measure that could kill the proposed 14-mile elevated train project will go before Seattle voters in November. ... If approved, I-83 would block or revoke city permits to construct the planned 14-mile, $1.75 billion Green Line linking Ballard, Seattle Center, downtown and West Seattle.
