SEATTLE – The Puget Sound Regional Council is recommending projects to receive about $533 million in PSRC funds and is encouraging public comment on a $6.2 billion draft regional Transportation Improvement Program that shows projects moving forward in the central Puget Sound region through 2022, funded by state, federal, regional and local funds.

"The 377 projects in the TIP are an important milestone in catching up with the rapid growth the region is experiencing," said Josh Brown, PSRC's Executive Director.  "Over 70% of these projects are moving forward with construction phases. Many of the investments we have made in the recent past are about ready to help move the region better."

A complete list of projects and more detailed information is available online at psrc.org, including a web map with information on each project. You can view the projects by location, along with other data such as the location of regional centers, designated freight routes and other information. 

The public comment period runs from September 13 to October 25, 2018.

Written comments received by October 4, will be included in the agenda packet for the October 11Transportation Policy Board meeting. PSRC's Executive Board is scheduled to approve the final 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program on October 25.
