Highway Pollution Calculator

Front and Centered, 350 Washington, Transit Riders Union

Right now our state legislators are deciding whether to fund several projects around Washington State that widen highways with more car lanes.

What if we could pinpoint exactly how much more pollution and climate change will be generated by a new highway proposal? Would our smart, progressive legislators sit up and listen?

With the Highway Pollution Calculator, allies in the fight against climate change and allies of BIPOC communities cannot support highway expansion in good conscience. The calculator shows the ruthless destructiveness of the claim that we can build ourselves out of the very congestion that highways themselves create.

Tell your state legislators: it’s time to stop deluding ourselves that we can address congestion by widening roads, instead let's start to create a transportation system that supports the health and mobility of all Washingtonians.
