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. In July 2022, the trail advisory groups, with input from the public, selected a preferred route to connect Fife to downtown Tacoma, finalizing the full trail route.
The Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail will connect downtown Puyallup to Fife and downtown Tacoma, providing people who live and work in the area with a new option to travel without a motorized vehicle to a variety of destinations. Through this study, WSDOT will complete preliminary trail design, establish trail character, prepare construction cost estimations and begin the environmental review.
WSDOT's SR 167 Completion Project is leading the study in coordination with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, Pierce County, the Port of Tacoma, the cities of Tacoma, Fife and Puyallup, and other local cities and agencies.
