Planning study news
This study will complete preliminary engineering, environmental analysis and cost estimation for a Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail in Pierce County. Currently, there is no direct, off-street route between downtown Tacoma and downtown Puyallup for non-motorized travel. A prior study by the Washington State Department of Transportation and its regional partners selected a preferred trail path along the future SR 167 alignment. WSDOT's SR 167 Completion Project is leading this latest study in coordination with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, the cities of Fife, Puyallup, and Tacoma, Metro Parks Tacoma and Pierce County.
This Preliminary Engineering and Environmental Analysis will allow WSDOT and project partners to develop a preliminary design for a Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail project. The study, led by WSDOT's SR 167 Completion Project, will also select and design a preferred route into Tacoma. The study will help solidify a cost estimate for construction.
