Drafting on the Highway (Options)

The Chamber's Board of Directors adopted a policy statement addressing the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Transportation 2040 plan currently available for public review.

You may review the Chamber's comments on the enclosed copy of the letter sent today.

The DEIS analyses six plan alternatives (a baseline and five alternatives). In addition to how planned investment can be sustained, Puget Sound Regional Council provides how the alternatives would impact congestion and mobility as well as air and water quality.
The deadline for comments on the Transportation 2040 Draft Environmental Impact Statement has been extended until July 31, 2009. To view the Draft EIS document and for information on how to comment please visit the PSRC website . Point of contact is Sean Ardussi, fax at 206-587-4825.
