Through 2040 & Beyond, we're Managing Washington’s Transportation System Together.
Washington is growing quickly, and the future is now. This policy plan will provide the overarching framework for state and local transportation departments to deliver an integrated, multi-modal system that meets the travel needs for all of us.
Makes the best use of existing infrastructure, services, and resources to foster commerce and economic opportunity for all.
Increases travel choices, and system reliability, and operates seamlessly across jurisdictional boundaries and between modes
Supports local and regional land use objectives and optimize existing infrastructure.
Reduces environmental and social impacts and uses public resources wisely in order to generate maximum benefit.
In April 2018, WSDOT adopted a 20-year implementation plan for the state transportation system, WTP 2035 Phase 2. Phase 2 builds on the Commission’s WTP 2035 Phase 1 policy plan for development of the state’s multimodal transportation system.
Autonomous vehicles (AV) are operating on Washington’s roadways today. As of late 2018, eight companies had self-certified their ability to safely operate in the state with the Washington Department of Licensing.
In 2012 the Legislature directed the Transportation Commission to conduct a full assessment of road usage charging (RUC), which is a pay-by-the-mile fee that could replace the state’s gas tax.
