2023-25 Route Jurisdiction Study


The Route Jurisdiction Study (RJS) will assess the current state highway inventory and local roadway designations to determine if changes are needed in jurisdictional assignment between the state, county, and city road systems. The assessment will also review current criteria used to define the state highway system to determine if this criterion continues to be applicable.

Route Jurisdiction Study Process

The RJS will be active from the fall of 2023 through July of 2025. The Transportation Commission will actively collaborate with the Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) and Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) in carrying out the study, as well as gathering input from local agencies, boards, elected officials, and the public with targeted outreach to underserved communities, BIPOC populations, and Tribal Nations.
