60% has to be an overly exaggerated amount. I've driven 680 north in the morning and 680 south in the evening every day since the unnecessary shutdown started in March. Traffic has not increased at all in the last few weeks. Guess the MTC, which none of us have any say or votes in, needs to increase their revenues while they enjoy their taxpayer funded salaries for doing nothing over the last few months.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
