Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail

Planning study news

Work is underway to advance preliminary engineering, environmental analysis and cost estimation to complete the new Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail in Pierce County. The trail will be built alongside the future SR 167 alignment between Meridian Avenue in Puyallup and Alexander Avenue East in Tacoma. The continuing route into downtown Tacoma is currently under evaluation as part of this study. WSDOT's SR 167 Completion Project is leading the study in coordination with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, the cities of Fife, Puyallup, Tacoma, and Edgewood, Metro Parks Tacoma, Pierce County, the Port of Tacoma, Sound Transit, Pierce Transit and Downtown On The Go.

In progress
$2.3 million for a preliminary engineering and environmental study


This Preliminary Engineering and Environmental Analysis will allow WSDOT and project partners to complete a design for a new Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail. The current study, led by WSDOT's SR 167 Completion Project, will select and design a preferred route into Tacoma. The study will help solidify a cost estimate for construction. 


The solid dark blue line shows the portion of the trail that will be built during SR 167 stage 1b construction through 2025. The solid light blue line indicates the preferred trail route along WSDOT's SR 167 Stage 2 alignment. Potential routes to Tacoma are still being assessed.
