DIRECT COMMUNICATIONS THROUGH YOUR LETTERS AND EMAILS – having had a major impact on making Olympia painfully aware of the SR162 situation – we were one of the larger noisemakers in the 2019 Olympia legislative session. The efforts of the public with their letters and emails helped moving the widening of SR162 between Sumner and Orting to the top of the Transportation budger committee's agenda this year – thank you  NOW, lets continue into 2020 until we get funding.

DIRECT COMMUNICATION WITH PIERCE COUNTY EXECUTIVE - we have met with the County Executive Bruce Dammeier who was very receptive and attentive to our attempts to find resolution to the traffic problems in the Sumner to Orting transportation corridor.  He is personally familiar with the issues in this area of the County.  While the County's focus is on completing the Canyon Road corridor connection to the future SR167 exension, he indicated that the County is aware and will be focusing on the Sumner to Orting corridor and its connecting County roads in an effort to address the issues we have

DIRECT COMMUNICATION WITH TEHALEH SITE LEADERSHIP - to discuss development plans, highway construction and design plans, as well as traffic impacts to the valley

MEDIA - The Tacoma News Tribune and Puyallup Herrald ran a video and article on our group and the issues concerning this SR162 corridor.  We plan future coverage when the timing is right
