Every year, Sumner outlines its priority transportation projects for the next six years. Priorities may mean that a project needs attention for further study, funding or construction. By being on the plan, it also helps Sumner seek grant funding for these projects.  Together, they help the City keep Sumner’s traffic and pedestrians moving.
