Pacific Avenue SR-7 Corridor Consolidated Capital Improvement Plan

The Pierce County Council recognizes the Pacific Avenue SR-7 Corridor as a high priority area for future capital facility investments. The Pacific Avenue SR-7 Corridor Consolidated Capital Improvement Plan analyzes the public facilities needed within the corridor to support the achievement of the Pierce County Comprehensive Plan’s vision and goals for this area. It was developed at the request of the County Council and compiles information from existing documents.

Active Transportation Resources

There are a number of local resources to guide active transportation around the Pierce County. Our Bicycling Resources page includes the Pierce County Bike Map. The map shows trails and other facilities to help cyclists choose their route. The Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department makes a walking guide of popular routes in the County.
