Project Delivery Plan
See the details of our 2022 updated Project Delivery Plan and how it shapes transportation across the state.
The 2022 update to the Project Delivery Plan represents a snapshot as of July 1, 2022 of the project specific plan for work to be delivered by the department for state fiscal years 2023 through 2028. The update includes the following general assumptions and concepts:
- Aligns with legislative direction provided in the 2022 Transportation budget (SSB 5689) that passed on March, 25 2022.
- Basis for WSDOT's 2023-25 Biennial Budget Submittal.
- Provides Intent for Delivery.
- Includes over-programming the Roadway Preservation (P1) Program.
The Legislature passed the 2022 Transportation Budget (SSB 5689) and Move Ahead Washington (MAW) Revenue Package (ESSB 5975) with the Governor's signature on March 25, 2022. The supplemental and MAW revenue package address cost increases for Connecting Washington projects, fully funds the state’s fish passage commitment through 2030, provides increased funding for storm-water and highway preservation, funds several new mobility projects, including fully funding the Interstate Bridge Project, funds four hybrid electric ferries and two conversions of existing ferries, and provides funding for terminal and vessel preservation.
Shaping transportation in Washington
The project delivery plan meets the Federal Highway Administration's requirement for states to program four years of projects in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and includes all projects funded by the State Legislature. The plan is updated annually to ensure that budget changes on projects match up with enacted budgets.
Benefits of the 2022 Project Delivery Plan
- By identifying six years of projects, we have better coordination and planning between WSDOT and local governments.
- The plan prioritizes where project funds will be spent first; this allows us to use any extra savings or new revenue on projects that are ready to be built.
- In addition, WSDOT commits, or obligates, the federal funding for the Delivery Plan. This qualifies Washington to receive federal funds that are redistributed annually when other states do not obligate all their funds.
