The Washington Department of Transportation invites residents to comment on and attend an online open house regarding future improvements to state Route 167. Travel along the often-congested highway could be transformed through transportation investments that consider the needs of fast-growing communities along the corridor.
An online open house with information on recent research and engagement related to the SR 167 Master Plan, wsdot.wa.gov/construction-planning/search-studies/sr-167-master-plan, is now available. The master plan is a study to identify potential near-, medium- and long-term multimodal strategies to meet traffic demand. The final report is expected in early 2023.
A survey allows online open house participants to help the Washington State Department of Transportation think about how to prioritize future investments that could improve the movement of personal vehicles, transit and freight along the corridor. Feedback will be accepted through July 29.
The study considers the existing SR 167 between Renton and Puyallup, as well as a future extension of the highway to SR 509 at the Port of Tacoma. WSDOT will also consider the local transportation system.
This is the first of two online open houses planned for the master planning process. The next opportunity will focus on study outcomes.
