The City of Tacoma, Department of Public Works - Tacoma Rail Mountain Division, is proposing a sale
of approximately 1.21 miles of Railroad Right-of-Way located between East D and Bay Streets, near
Freighthouse Square. The City has determined that this portion of the right-of-way is surplus to its needs
and should be sold to Sound Transit for use in the inter-city commuter rail line.
A Public Hearing has been scheduled for December 10, 2013 regarding this proposed sale via the Negotiated
Disposition process. The intent of this process is to conduct a sale which will allow Tacoma Rail to continue its
freight operations while improving and enhancing the regional transportation system. The Negotiation
Disposition process allows the City to enter into negotiations with a buyer that meets unique requirements,
such as the ability to operate and maintain railroad infrastructure.
This sale does not impact the operations of Tacoma Rail.
