    I find it interesting that you don’t encounter even the word “toll” on any sign on northbound 99 from West Seattle until you reach a variable message readerboard right at the last off ramp before the tunnel, and the variable sign just says “Tolling Starts Nov 9”.  There seem to be no provisions either northbound or southbound to advise drivers of the current toll BEFORE they’re committed.     The Good To Go signs that state the current toll are placed as you exit the tunnel, not before you enter, and certainly not in advance of knowing what the current charge is going to be.I’ve always seen yellow “Toll Road”  signs placed adjacent to/below
    other road signs providing info about the road, and often “Last Exit
    Before Toll” signs too.

      I find it interesting that some tree leaves turn vibrant red and yellow in the fall, how the air takes on a chill, and the West Seattle Turkey continues to roam. Also very interesting how the sunsets have been so magenta lately.

Sorry, comment time is over.
