State seeking public comment

New Washington Transportation Plan

The Washington State Department of Transportation is seeking input on its 20-year plan by November 6, 2017. 

All Washingtonians have an opportunity to provide input into the future of the state's transportation system.

The state transportation plan is a long-term vision for the statewide multimodal transportation system. It establishes how the state can prepare itself for an uncertain future in the face of climate change and advances in technology.

The plan covers four focus areas with 11 action items to guide decision makers on major issues facing the statewide transportation system.

The four focus areas are:

  • Maintain and Preserve Assets 
  • Manage Growth and Traffic Congestion
  • Enhance Multimodal Connections and Choices
  • Align the Funding Structure with the Multimodal Vision
