City of Tacoma to Present Options for Completing Historic Water Ditch Trail

Water Ditch Trail Open HouseJoin bicyclists, pedestrians, residents and City of Tacoma staff tomorrow evening (November 19) for an open house reviewing options to finish the Historic Water Ditch Trail.

The City has analyzed the South Tacoma Way corridor between Pine and C Streets and developed four alignment alternatives that will connect the two existing segments of the Water Ditch Trail and complete it. This is an opportunity to learn about the proposed alignments, question the design team and provide feedback.

When completed, the 6.5 mile Historic Water Ditch Trail will connect South Tacoma with downtown, the Tacoma Dome and the Thea Foss Waterway. It restores a historic 1896 trail that was once part of a 110-year-old trail system that traveled through Tacoma and extended to Mount Rainier.

Last summer Kidical Mass explored the Water Ditch Trail on one of its rides. You can read about their adventure in this Tacoma Bike Ranch blog post.

Can’t make the open house? The City invites you to complete its online survey beginning November 19.
