I-5 - SR 16 Tacoma/Pierce County HOV Program - Public involvement

Your input in the design and construction process is important to us. We want the Tacoma/Pierce County community to be aware of our projects and involved as we design and construct them.

Public involvement activities started as early as July 1993 when the program was initially envisioned. Since then public presentations, open houses and hearings have been held to provide opportunities for public input.

Most recently, team members from the HOV Program answered questions and provided informational materials to the public at community events.  We will continue to be at community events throughout the year. 

Want to schedule a presentation?

If you represent a group that would like to hear a presentation about the Tacoma/Pierce County HOV Program, we would be pleased to hear from you.  Contact Claudia Bingham Baker, at (360) 357-2789 or at bakerc@wsdot.wa.gov
