Update on RTID

Submitted by Paul Ellis

Over the next few months, the Regional Transportation Investment District (RTID) will need to make tough decisions about which roads and bridges will be included in the regional Roads & Transit ballot measure next November.

Work to date is incorporated in the Blueprint for Progress, a draft proposal created by the RTID Executive Board that proposes regional road and bridge investments in key highway corridors in Snohomish, Pierce and King counties. The RTID Executive Committee will meet January 12th to discuss the Blueprint and possible changes to the plan; RTID hopes to adopt a draft Blueprint at their January 26th Executive Committee meeting.

In February the Executive Committees of RTID and Sound Transit will launch a joint effort to gather input on the integrated Roads & Transit effort.

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.
