Community Engagement Plan

Learn about our community engagement plan, which includes our policy for engagement, shares guidance for practitioners, and lets community members know what to expect.

The Community Engagement Plan, 2016 (PDF 1.4MB) is consistent with strategic direction from the Governor, USDOT, agency leadership, stakeholders and community members.

The 2021 Legislature passed the Healthy Environment for All (HEAL) Act, which requires each covered agency, including Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), to create and adopt a community engagement plan that describes how it will engage with overburdened communities and vulnerable populations. We are reviewing our plan for compliance with the HEAL Act and expect to publish an update in July 2022.
