Learning about a Connected Northwest Future

Issues

  • Safety First: House bills 2439 and 2287 address concerns about passenger safety governance and information sharing.
  • Reopening of the Point Defiance Bypass: Congestion is choking our region’s travel time reliability, yet a key alternative is being delayed. The Point Defiance Bypass will reduce delays, save time, and enable Amtrak Cascades to expand its number of daily trains. We must reopen the Bypass to keep moving forward.
  • Expansion into the Yakima Valley: Now that the East-West passenger rail feasibility study has been completed, options should be examined for giving the Yakima Valley convenient daytime service to the Tri-Cities, Spokane, Seattle, and beyond.
