King County Executive Dow Constantine brought together leaders from all over the community today to bring hope to the South Park Bridge Replacement Project. At the base of the South Park Bridge this afternoon, elected leaders from the state to neighborhood came to announce their support for the South Park Bridge Replacement. Governor Chris Gregoire announced $20 million from the State, Constantine, King County Council Chair Bob Ferguson and County Council Member Julia Patterson announced $30 million from King County, City of Seattle Council President Richard Conlin announced $15 million from Seattle, and Port Commissioner Gael Tarleton announced $5 million to support the bridge replacement.
