Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail

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.

July 2021-December 2022
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 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. 


The dark blue line shows the the trail that will be built as part of SR 167 construction between 2022-2025. The bright blue and yellow lines indicate the Tacoma to Puyallup preferred route for this preliminary engineering, environmental and cost study.
