To assist the region in fulfilling its long-range transportation planning goals in both the urban and rural areas of Thurston County, TRPC has authority to program discretionary federal funds to transportation projects, programs and services that serve local communities.
Executing a call for projects is part of TRPC’s continuous, coordinated, and comprehensive approach to regional transportation planning.
The Regional Transportation Improvement Program is a 4 year investment plan of regionally significant capital projects derived from local government’s 6 year Transportation Improvement Programs. This document may be amended on an as-needed basis, but is required to be updated annually and adopted by TRPC in October.
The Regional Trails Plan offers a vision for a region-wide trail network that connects people with places not just within Thurston County, but also looks beyond its borders for potential connections with neighboring counties. The plan is foremost a trail systems blueprint. It illustrates through maps and user-friendly narratives how multiple trails can connect.
