So state Route 167 needs to be extended to connect agrarian Eastern Washington to the warehouses of Sumner, Auburn and Kent (TNT, 12-3)? Has anyone looked at a map?
To get from Eastern Washington to Sumner, Auburn or Kent, you need to take Interstate 90 and then state Route 18. If you’re going to Sumner, you’d get off at Auburn and then go south.
The extension of 167 along the River Road area would save a few – very few – miles for people going from Sumner and Puyallup to the Port of Tacoma. But $2 billion worth of save? Give me a break.
