NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Sumner Shoreline Administrator has received an application for a Shoreline Substantial Development Permit, application for a Shoreline Variance and application for a Shoreline Conditional Use Permit for the project described below. The Sumner Hearing Examiner is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the Shoreline Substantial Development Permit, Shoreline Variance and Shoreline Conditional Use Permit applications at the date/time below.

Proposal: The City of Sumner is proposing to add general purpose lanes and non-motorized facilities on Traffic Avenue between the five lanes, E. Main Street Bridge, over the Puyallup River and the five lane-lane section of Traffic Avenue extending north towards downtown Sumner. The most significant section of work will include adding a lane in each direction to the existing two lanes bridge crossing over SR410. This would be done by building a separate parallel structure to carry new general-purpose lanes and non-motorized facilities. The project will reconfigure intersections at each end of the existing SR410 overpass that connect to the SR 410 access ramps and Thompson Street. The south end of the project will connect to Puyallup’s Riverwalk Trail, the Sumner Link Trail, and Pierce County’s Foothills Trail system. Non-motorized facilities will be installed through the length of the project to provide an ADA accessible pathway connecting to the Sound Transit Sounder Rail Station. The project is located within the shoreline jurisdiction of the White River; therefore, a Shoreline Substantial Development Permit and a Shoreline Conditional Use Permit are required. State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) review is also required for the project.
