About Forward Washington

Forward Washington is a new pilot project that brings regional planning throughout the state to one handy place anyone can use. Washington’s Regional Transportation Planning Organizations were tasked by the state legislature with recommending important next investments in all types of transportation. The information presented on Forward Washington is developed locally. Working within each region, local planners have helped communities identify regional priorities. Each regional planning organization maintains information about regional investment priorities on its own. The combined efforts of the entire state are presented on Forward Washington via software developed by Paladin Data Systems of Poulsbo. It’s statewide, but locally based, transparently available to anyone with an interest. And it could be the start or a new, more efficient, way to manage transportation projects, start to finish, and let people know what’s happening.
