Schuster Parkway Trail


Project Background:

The Schuster Parkway corridor connects two waterfront areas - Ruston Way shoreline promenade/Point Defiance to the north, and Thea Foss waterway esplanade to the south. Both areas have undergone significant transformation from industrial land use to attractive, urban mixed-use waterfronts. The City of Tacoma’s long-term vision has been to connect these two urban waterfronts with a shared-use trail.


Currently, the Schuster Parkway shoreline area is an active industrial waterfront abutting a steep slope to the west, bisected by the mainline Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad and Schuster Parkway, a high speed arterial.


The Schuster Parkway Trail will be the primary multiuse connection through the Schuster Parkway corridor. The Schuster Parkway Trail completes the Dome to Defiance regional non-motorized system with a separated multiuse facility from Thea Foss waterway esplanade and the Museum District via the existing S. 4th Street overpass to the business and residential area of Old Town in the north end of Tacoma. Another connection to multiuse paths within the City of Tacoma and the Tacoma downtown area include the Prairie Line Trail which connects to the Thea Foss waterway esplanade via the E. 15th Street overpass.


Project Goal:

The Schuster Parkway corridor will be transformed from a high speed, automobile-dominated thoroughfare into a multimodal corridor with the addition of a public shared use trail with a well-defined separation from vehicular traffic. The shared-use trail will provide a safe and desirable link between Thea Foss Waterway and Ruston Way for commuters and recreational users alike.


Project Description:

Design is focused on a shared-use trail along the sloped west side of Schuster Parkway. The shared-use trail would span from S. 4th Street overpass to McCarver Street in Old Town.
