You decide which projects should go in the budget and which should just go away with this interactive Seattle Times form. You get to choose the level of funding for a variety of transportation and transit “megaprojects,” such as building HOV lanes, renovating highways, and setting up new bus and rail stations. Then you have to allocate new taxes to pay for them all. You can also submit your (hopefully) balanced budget to the paper for use in a future story about transportation solutions.
