Point Defiance Bypass Project Advisory Teams

The next advisory team meetings

  • Technical Advisory Team: none scheduled 
  • Executive Advisory Team: none scheduled

WSDOT is conducting an Environmental Assessment for the Point Defiance Bypass project. The environmental Assessment process will examine all the various aspects of this project including impacts on roadway traffic, public safety, impacts on community development plans, and other environmental impacts.

Why is WSDOT engaging with Advisory Teams?
To ensure meaningful engagement and to maintain steady progress on the project, we invited key stakeholders and municipalities within the project area to be part of two advisory teams - a technical team and an executive team.

The Technical Advisory Team is tasked with providing technical review and feedback on the Point Defiance Bypass project Environmental Assessment, and to submit recommendations for review by the Executive Advisory Team.

The Executive Advisory Team will meet regularly to review and comment on updates to transportation analyses and other environmental work produced by project staff and technical advisory team - specifically focusing on potential traffic impacts.

Our advisory team partners include:

  • City of DuPont;
  • City of Lakewood;
  • City of Tacoma;
  • Pierce County;
  • Sound Transit;
  • Clover Park School District;
  • Joint Base Lewis-McChord;
  • Camp Murray
  • Federal Highway Administration

WSDOT provides regular updates and receives input from the governor's office, Washington state U.S. Senators and Washington legislators.
