Front Porch: Transportation plan input sought

Transportation plan input

Just more than a week remains for you to comment on the Puget Sound Regional Council’s Transportation 2040 Update draft report. Comments are due by 5 p.m. March 10.

The agency’s action plan for transportation in the region is being updated to address current issues and meet statutory requirements. The regional council is to adopt the plan in May.

As part of the update process, the council conducted an analysis to ensure that low-income and minority residents, as well as residents with special needs, benefit from Transportation 2040.

More information about the plan is available at the PSRC website, www.psrc.org/transportation/t2040/transportation-2040-update, or by calling 206-464-7532.
