The Washington State Transportation Commission has released the draft Washington Transportation Plan (WTP 2030) for public review and comment.
WTP 2030 is a 20-year plan Washington State’s transportation system. It identifies long-term funding shortfalls, service needs, and system wide challenges along with suggested solutions and approaches aimed at moving our transportation network into the future. Once finalized, the plan will be submitted to the Governor and the 2011 Legislature.
Public input is an important part of developing WTP 2030. In September, the Commission will hold five “listening sessions,” including one here in Spokane the afternoon of September 23. I’ll provide more info on that as we get closer to the date.
If you don’t want to wait to get a look at the WTP 2030, you can view it here. You can also submit public input there. The plan is expected to be finalized and approved in December.
