Tacoma to Puyallup Regional Trail – What is the Tacoma to Puyallup (T2P) Regional Trail route?

The 2020 Regional Trail Connection Route Analysis Study (PDF 8.2MB) evaluated three potential routes for the Tacoma to Puyallup (T2P) Regional Trail using criteria like cost, constructability, safety, connectivity, and user experience. Based on input from the community and the results of the study, a stakeholder advisory group that included representatives of WSDOT, the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, Pierce County, the cities of Tacoma, Fife, and Puyallup, and other local agencies and organizations selected a route along the future SR 167 corridor.

Why the SR 167 route?

The SR 167 route provides the best connections to existing trails, future Sound Transit light rail stations, employment centers, businesses, and neighborhoods. As a result of the study recommendation, part of the T2P Regional Trail received funding and will be built with the SR 167 Stage 1a/1b project. Another segment is included in the SR 167 Stage 2 project.
