Transportation projects totaling more than $7.9 billion will move forward in the central Puget Sound region, following action by the Puget Sound Regional Council’s Executive Board to approve the 2013-2016 Regional Transportation Improvement Program on October 25.

The Regional Transportation Improvement Program provides a list of current transportation projects in all four counties of the region – King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish. These projects are funded with federal, state and local funds, including recent federal grants awarded through PSRC.

Among the projects receiving PSRC funding in the Shoreline / Lake Forest Park / Kenmore area are:
  • Aurora Ave N (Third Mile), N 192nd St to N 205th St  - $3,411,665
  • N 175th Street Overlay Preservation Project, Midvale Avenue N to I-5 - $190,229
  • Interurban Trail - Burke Gilman Connection – 195th Street Trail (1st Ave NE – 5th Ave NE) - $371,950
  • Westminster Way N Overlay Preservation Project, N 145th Street to Aurora Avenue N - $246,054
  • Lynnwood to Northgate Link Light Rail Extension - $2,691,969
  • Briarcrest safe routes to school - NE 158th and 27th NE sidewalks and curb ramps $425,000
  • LFP NE 178th roadway improvements (Brookside Blvd NE to 33rd Ave NE) $912,000
  • Kenmore - Bothell Way lane widening, turn lanes, 57th NE to 65 NE $24,436,174 

“Securing federal transportation funding for communities in the region is one of the key roles of the Puget Sound Regional Council,” said Commissioner Josh Brown, PSRC President.  “These projects are advancing a better system that gets people and goods where they need to go, provides transportation choices, and helps grow jobs in the region.”

The Transportation Improvement Program is required under federal and state laws, and helps to ensure that transportation projects are meeting regional policies and federal and state requirements such as those under the Clean Air Act.

PSRC develops policies and coordinates decisions about regional growth, transportation and economic development planning within King, Pierce, Snohomish and Kitsap counties. The Council is composed of over 80 entities, including all four counties, cities and towns, ports, state, and local transportation agencies and tribal governments within the region. PSRC is also the lead regional economic development planning resource and home to the Prosperity Partnership.
