Chamber to host transportation business briefing Oct. 24

The Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce will hold a business briefing on transportation, addressing State Route 509 and State Route 167 (the Puget Sound Gateway Program), from 2-3 p.m.on Monday, Oct. 24 in the boardroom in the Chamber's offices (31919 1st Ave. S., Suite 202)

The Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce will hold a business briefing on transportation, addressing State Route 509 and State Route 167 (the Puget Sound Gateway Program), from 2-3 p.m.on Monday, Oct. 24 in the boardroom in the Chamber’s offices (31919 1st Ave. S., Suite 202)

The Gateway Program completes SR 167 in north Pierce County and SR 509 in South King County, providing more links from the state’s largest ports to distribution centers in the region and in eastern Washington. It will also provide access to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport from the south for both passengers and air cargo.

“The Gateway Program is one of the legislative priorities at the Chamber,” Chamber CEO Rebecca Martin said in a release. “The Chamber Board recognizes that we are an economic hub in the South Sound region, making transportation along our business corridors critical for economic vitality.”

The briefing will feature Craig Stone, the Puget Sound Gateway Program Administrator for the Washington State Department of Transportation. Working with WSDOT’s Olympic and Northwest regions, Craig is the lead on the $1.9 billion project.

The briefing is open to the public, with pre-registration required at federalwaychamber.com. The cost is $10 for Chamber members and $20 for non-members.

[Note: An earlier version of this story identified Stone’s title as “Assistant Secretary for the Toll Division” at WSDOT. This is Stone’s previous title; his current title has been updated in the story.]
