The project lists for two of the Puget Sound Regional Council’s funding programs have been released for public comment through March 24, 2022.

Nine projects – including one in SeaTac – have been recommended for $13.5 million in Transportation Alternative Program funding. This program funds community-based transportation improvements such as bicycle and pedestrian facilities, historic preservation of transportation assets, environmental mitigation, and more. The projects are located in Bellevue, Bothell, Bremerton, Kent, Lynnwood, SeaTac, Shoreline, Tacoma, and Tukwila (view detailed list here).

The SeaTac project will construct safety and mobility improvements around the SeaTac/Airport light rail station at four street segments and two intersections. Specific improvements include new bicycle lanes, sidewalks, sharrows and a bicycle boulevard, as well as improvements to landscaping, crossings, lighting and signals.

Eight projects have been recommended for $5.48 million in Rural Town Centers and Corridors Program funding. The program funds projects supporting smaller towns and cities in rural areas of the region. The projects are located in Carnation, King County, Kitsap County, North Bend, Orting, Snohomish, Stanwood, and Sultan (view detailed list here).

Both recommendations include prioritized contingency lists of projects if additional funds become available.
