State seeks public comment on transportation plan

OLYMPIA — Public comment will be taken on Phase 2 of the state’s transportation plan through Nov. 6.

Phase 2 is implementation of the Washington Transportation Plan, the state Department of Transportation said.

“The plan establishes how the state can prepare itself for an uncertain future in the face of climate change and advances in technology,” the state said in a press release.

Phase 1 laid out a 20-year vision for the statewide multimodal transportation system.

Phase 2 deals with four focus areas and 11 action items.

“It also establishes how the state can prepare itself for four plausible, but uncertain futures regarding climate change and technology and their potential impacts on the statewide transportation system,” according to the press release.

Copies of the plan and a comment form for submitting feedback are available online at https://washtrans plan.com, by phone at 206-464-1261 or by written request to Washington State Department of Transportation, Multimodal Planning Division, 401 Second Ave., Suite 300, Seattle, WA 98104.
