Washington Transportation Plan (WTP) 2035 Outreach Event

The Washington State Transportation Commission is seeking broad public comment on its draft Washington Transportation Plan (WTP 2035), a plan designed to chart the course for how the statewide transportation system will change and grow over the next 20 years.

To help meet this objective, the Commission is gathering statewide ideas, comments and concerns from the general public through online, webinar and upcoming in-person forums around the state.

There will be an open house to speak with Washington State Transportation Commissioners (WSTC) as well as local staff to share your thoughts and feedback on the draft WTP 2035 on Thursday, September 18th 5:00 - 8:00pm at Ben Franklin Transit (1000 Columbia Park Trail, Richland).
