Invitation to RAMP Participants

East side of the Thea Foss Waterway Transportation Corridor Study - Design Alternatives Community Workshop: the City of Tacoma is conducting a transportation corridor study for the east side of the Thea Foss Waterway, and community input is encouraged.

When: Thursday, September 27th
4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Where: Phoenix Room, Freighthouse Square, Tacoma Dome District (2501 E. 'D' St. )

Study Purpose: Develop recommendations that will serve four primary functions:
  1. Improve vehicular and pedestrian access to the two distinct development areas located on the east side of the Foss (industrial and non-industrial).
  2. Provide for a functional separation between industrial and non-industrial development areas.
  3. Potentially create new freight routes to improve public access.
  4. Physically distinguish the areas with unique signage, limited access and landscaped buffers.
Study Area Boundaries: Thea Foss Waterway, Commencement Bay, the Puyallup River and I-5
