South Pierce Multimodal Connectivity Study

Planning study news

WSDOT is leading the multimodal connectivity study through the communities of Puyallup, Orting, Roy, Spanaway, Fredrickson, Graham, Elk Plain, Parkland and South Hill. Since fall 2022, the study team has analyzed both existing and future conditions of the study area and defined a range of draft improvement strategies. This analysis has been enhanced by community input and the work of two advisory committees. Later this spring, WSDOT will share preliminary study findings with the community.

This study will address key priorities of safety, multimodal connectivity and reducing delays for all users of transportation facilities. WSDOT and the study partners aim to identify feasible strategies that improve transportation performance for all travelers.
