Tacoma Link Extension

Seeks approved status to move forward

The 2.4-mile light rail extension from the Theater District in downtown to the Hilltop neighborhood in Tacoma is ready to move forward and is seeking approved status from the PSRC.

The region’s transportation plan contains policies requiring board approval of regionally significant transportation capacity projects before those projects begin implementation phases.

The Tacoma Link Extension will add new stations, relocate the existing Theater District station, expand the existing Operations and Maintenance Facility and grow the fleet by five vehicles.

The Transportation Policy Board will make a recommendation on the project at its meeting on January 11, 2018 at 9:30 am. Watch it live here

The board will also act on projects recommended to receive Transportation Alternatives Program funding, policies and procedures for the upcoming PSRC funding cycle, and regional safety performance measures.
