Amendment Proposes Multiple Changes to WSDOT Project

We are asking for input on a proposed amendment to the 2016-2019 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is a document that identifies projects programmed to be undertaken or constructed during the upcoming four years. It includes project names and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal funds). The TIP is updated regularly as SRTC’s member jurisdictions have projects to add, change or remove from the program.

The proposed amendment would reduce the total project cost of a WSDOT Interstate 90 on-ramp project, change the source of funding from federal to state funding, and advance construction of the project by two years to 2017 and 2018.

Details on the proposed amendment are below. Click the image to view it full size. This information is also available on the SRTC website at

A public comment period for the amendment goes through 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 26, 2015. Comments can be submitted by commnenting here, emailing to, mailing to SRTC at 221 W. 1st Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA, or by calling (509) 343-6370.
