PSRC Seeking Public Comment on Funding for Two Transportation Projects

SEATTLE – The Puget Sound Regional Council is encouraging people to comment on a recommendation to provide $481,000 of PSRC funding to two projects in Pierce County. The two projects are:
• Pierce Transit’s Vanpool Vehicle Replacement, retires aging vans, $208,775
• Sound Transit’s Tacoma Link Expansion, completes preliminary engineering, $272,281

These funds are available as the result of higher than estimated allocations of PSRC’s federal funds. The public comment period will run from November 8 – December 6, 2012. PSRC’s Executive Board is scheduled to approve the funding for these projects on December 6.
