Transportation Master Plan
Kent’s Transportation Future
Transportation issues are among the top concerns for Kent residents. Over the next 20 years, our population and employment are expected to continue to grow. The Washington State Growth Management Act requires that the city, county, and state governments develop plans to coordinate growth in a way that safeguards quality of life, economic growth, and natural resources. Our challenge is to meet these requirements and balance the existing and long-term needs of drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and economic development. The Transportation Master Plan (PDF, 33MB) provides the framework we need to accomplish this balance.
