Share your thoughts on the River Crossing environmental study

In summer 2020, we asked you what we should study in our River Crossing environmental review, and then we got to work. Now we have early findings to share!

A quick refresher: these types of studies are required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to identify potential environmental and social impacts of the project and to think through how to reduce or offset these impacts prior to taking further action.

Work continues, but we wanted to check in with you along the way. You can review the early River Crossing environmental findings through an Online Open House through Sept. 24. We encourage you to share questions or comments on the findings in one of the following ways:

  • Comment by phone at (253) 330-8831

We’re also hosting a virtual Town Hall on Wednesday, Sept. 15 from 7-8 p.m. to answer your questions about the River Crossing portion of the project. Register here today or by email to
