About WTP 2030
The Washington Transportation Plan (WTP 2030) is a comprehensive and balanced statewide transportation plan that establishes a 20-year vision for the development of the statewide transportation system, from state highways and ferries to sidewalks and bike paths, county roads, city streets, public transit, air and rail. WTP 2030 identifies the total unfunded statewide need over 20 years, identifies significant statewide transportation issues, and recommends statewide transportation policies and strategies to the legislature and Governor (RCW 47.01.071(4)).
By law, WTP 2030 is required to be consistent with state’s growth management goals, reflect the priorities of government, and address regional needs, including multimodal transportation planning. WTP 2030 is based on the following six transportation policy goals established by the Legislature:
To maintain, preserve, and extend the life and utility of prior investments in transportation systems and services.
To provide for and improve the safety and security of transportation customers and the transportation system.
To improve the predictable movement of goods and people throughout Washington state.
Environmental Quality & Health
To enhance Washington’s quality of life through transportation investments that promote energy conservation, enhance healthy communities, and protect the environment.
To continuously improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of the transportation system.
To promote and develop transportation systems that stimulate, support and enhance the movement of people and goods to ensure a prosperous economy.
