How are we improving the Canyon Road corridor?

Pierce County is working with the City of Fife, Washington State Department of Transportation, Puyallup Tribe and other partners to create a more direct north-south connection from the Frederickson Industrial Area to the Port of Tacoma.

This project will support the local economy, provide new route options and cut travel times.
