Draft T2040 Up for Comments

The Puget Sound Regional Council presents the draft Transportation 2040 plan for the central Puget Sound region.

The PSRC’s Transportation Policy Board has been guiding the development of the plan for the past three years. The new transportation plan addresses critical issues such as congestion and mobility, the environment, and transportation finance. It is a framework document that guides future regional decisions, presents the region’s vision to federal and state policymakers and paves the way for the implementation of key regional projects and programs for the next 30 years.

PSRC will provide a paper copy upon request. Written comments on the draft plan are encouraged, and may be submitted using the online comment form. Written comments are also accepted by fax, mail or email.

PSRC would appreciate receiving written comments as early as possible. Comments received by March 9 will be summarized for consideration at the March 11, 2010 Transportation Policy Board meeting.

Public involvement remains a vital component of the process. During the coming weeks, PSRC staff will continue to reach out to member jurisdictions, countywide subarea groups, and other technical and policy committees to gather final comments on the draft plan. These comments will assist the PSRC policy boards in developing the Final Plan in March. Adoption of the final Transportation 2040 plan by the PSRC General Assembly is planned for May 2010.
