WSTC Adopts WA Transportation Plan

Submitted by Paul Ellis

The Transportation Commission adopted the updated 20-year Washington Transportation Plan today after two years of effort coordinated with stakeholders from across Washington State. The plan will serve as a blueprint for construction and provide strategies to guide decisions and investments needed to develop the state’s transportation system for the future.

Recognizing a projected $26 billion gap in high-priority system needs, the Commission developed five investment guidelines to set overall priorities and form the basis of the plan: preservation, safety, economic vitality, mobility. and environmental quality and health.

Paul Ellis is lead staff for RAMP; an employee of the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, Ellis led the Pierce County Transportation Advisory Committee (PCTAC), the community’s largest transportation planning effort.
