PSRC welcomes comments on massive transportation program

Puget Sound Regional Council logoPublic comment on a $6.2 billion draft regional Transportation Improvement Program may be submitted until October 25, according to the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC).

Comments may be made by mail, email or in person at either of two upcoming meetings. (see below)

PSRC is recommending projects to receive about $533 million in PSRC funds. There are 377 projects in the TIP, which PSRC Executive Director Josh Brown describes as "an important milestone in catching up with the rapid growth the region is experiencing." He noted more than 70 percent of these projects are moving forward with construction phases with funding by federal, state, regional, and local sources.

Detailed information and the complete list of projects plus an interactive map may be viewed online at psrc.org. Projects may be viewed by location, project title or various other criteria.

PSRC's executive board is scheduled to approve the final 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program on October 25.

PSRC develops policies and coordinates decisions about regional growth, transportation and economic development planning. More than 80 entities are part of PSRC, including King Pierce, Snohomish, and Kitsap Counties, ports, transportation agencies, and tribal governments.
