Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail Route Analysis

Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail Route Analysis

About the study

In 2019, WSDOT, in partnership with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, the cities of Fife, Puyallup, and Tacoma, Metro Parks Tacoma and Pierce County, studied options to create a new regional trail connecting communities between downtown Tacoma and downtown Puyallup. The Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail (T2P) Route Analysis evaluated three options for the new trail:

  • Levee Road
  • River Road
  • SR 167 new alignment

Throughout 2019, a stakeholder advisory group consisting of representatives from local jurisdictions and active transportation organizations discussed the three route options. In February 2020, the group recommended moving forward with the SR 167 new alignment option.

T2P Study Community Forum

As part of broader community outreach efforts, WSDOT and the T2P Stakeholder Advisory Group hosted a Community Forum in Puyallup on June 27, 2019 to kick off the T2P Study. Attendees learned about the options and shared their thoughts on active transportation needs, issues and concerns to inform the study.
