State and regional leaders celebrated the beginning of the Puget Sound Gateway program last week. This multiyear program will complete SR 167 in Pierce County and SR 509 in King County, providing key connections between Puget Sound marine ports and the industrial areas of South King and North Pierce counties.

Carnation and Eatonville town center projects moving ahead

Congratulations to Carnation and Eatonville! They were among seven jurisdictions receiving Rural Town Centers and Corridors funding in September.  This program provides a boost to economic development, safety, and walkability in the region’s small towns and cities.

Carnation City Hall

Regional Aviation Baseline Study

High capacity transit connections

One of the topics we’re examining in the Regional Aviation Baseline Study is the availability of fast and frequent transit service to airports. 

Today, high capacity transit serves Sea-Tac, Paine Field, Renton Municipal, Will Rogers-Wiley Post Memorial Seaplane Base, and Kenmore Air Seaplane Base in Seattle's Lake Union.  In the future, Link light rail and King County’s RapidRide will extend to four more airports. Learn more.

A mix of public and private airports

The region’s airports are diverse in size and ownership. Eight of the region’s 29 airports are privately owned, including Apex Airpark in Silverdale, Shady Acres Airport in Spanaway, and First Air Field in Monroe. Learn more.
