4 year transportation plan released; local projects included

Residents have the opportunity to review what transportation projects are scheduled in their area in the next 4 years.

The Washington Department of Transportation has posted their draft Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, showing their 4 year program of projects statewide.

The WSDOT is asking residents to review and comment on the project list.

“The online project list is the result of months of collaboration with local and regional transportation planning organizations.”

More than 1,300 statewide transportation improvement projects using $2.9 billion in federal funds are included in the 2017-20 STIP.

Also included are approximately 125 projects using $1.5 billion of Connecting Washington funds.

Some county projects are not included in the draft STIP since state law requires counties to complete their transportation programs by the end of the year so those projects are amended into the final STIP in January.

The projects listed in the STIP are listed as having the highest priorities for available funding, but as the four-year STIP is created annually, several projects may carry over as they move from design, to permitting and finally, to construction.

How to comment

Any resident can comment on the draft STIP through Friday, Dec. 16.

The comment period is the final step of the community engagement process that begins locally. Comments received will be sent to the local or regional planning organization for their consideration.

Written comments can be sent to: Nancy Huntley, WSDOT, PO Box 47390, Olympia, WA 98504-7390, email: Huntlen@wsdot.wa.gov, or by fax at 360-705-6822.
