LETTERS PROMPTED FURTHER DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN AGENCIES
An outcome of the legislators' letter and our letter to the Secretary of Transportation this past August is that the WSDOT has been in conversation with Pierce County on the traffic management on SR162 between Military Road and McMillin (128th St E).
We are waiting to hear an outcome of those conversations hoping it will result in an EIS for each of the sections of the highway: 128th St E/SR162 intersection (where they want to put in a huge roundabout), Military Road intersection (where they also want to put a big roundabout), and the highway between those two intersections.
WASHINGTON STATE SECRETARY OF TRANSPORTATION CONTACTED
Our State Legislators sent a letter to the State Secretary of Transportation, Roger Millar, regarding the traffic management on SR162. Our group also sent a letter as well and recieved a reply. OUR GROUP LETTER AND REPLY
SENATOR HANS ZEIGER HOSTED A STAKEHOLDER MEETING ON JULY 24
Attendees included leaders of our SR162 Community Group, representatives from the WSDOT, District State legislators, Pierce County Public Works department, a member of the Pierce County Council and a member of the Puyallup City Council
Meeting was designed to bring all stakeholders together allowing our group to present our concerns and expectations to all. The roundabout question drew a lot of attention from all parties. Very productive meeting, however, nothing got resolved regarding the roundabout. State legislators will be contacting Secretary of Transportation for resolution (request to open EIS)
