What is the vision for the SR 167 Master Plan?
The SR 167 Master Plan will identify solutions intended to facilitate the movement of people that travel on and across SR 167 for work, school, other essential and non-essential trips, and goods that support economic vitality. Travel along and across the SR 167 corridor will be safe, connected, resilient, and reliable. The SR 167 Master Plan will strive for practical solutions to:
- prioritize the needs of vulnerable and overburdened communities,
- reduce the physical barriers of the current transportation system,
- support the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) Regional Growth Strategy,
- facilitate transit and active transportation,
- support projected growth and land-use changes,
- accommodate freight movement, and
- reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
How will WSDOT know when it has achieved the SR 167 Master Plan’s vision?
WSDOT will know we have reached the Master Plan Vision when we have met the following goals:
Equity: Provide a range of transportation options that address the needs of vulnerable and overburdened communities along SR 167.
Safety: Improve existing safety conditions and future safety conditions.
Environment: Provide for improvements that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit environmental impacts.
Multimodal: Transform how people and goods travel in support of the Regional Growth Strategy. Focus on Regional Growth Centers, Manufacturing and Industrial Centers, and Countywide Centers through multimodal and multiagency investments. Reduce single occupancy vehicle demand and remove barriers for all modes that limit local connectivity across the corridor.
Mobility & Economic Vitality: Manage mobility for local, regional, state, and inter-state trips; leverage technology advancements; support economic vitality; and consider the unique needs of all travelers and modes, including freight movement, active transportation, and public transit.
Practical Solutions & State of Good Repair: Identify strategies that are practical, implementable, and fundable in a realistic timeline while considering the importance of maintaining a State of Good Repair throughout the planned life of the facility. A State of Good Repair refers to the condition of our facilities when they work the best.
