I don't get what the tunnel is about. It's not big enough to carry a freeway, and right next to it is an underpass that might actually be big enough. Could the tunnel have been intended for a pair of train tracks?

As Arthur indicated in his post, the tunnel is intended to be used by an on-ramp (probably single lane) from the Seatac Airport Southern Access Freeway. However, at least as far as I know, that project remains unfunded.

It's worth mentioning the tunnel was built a number of years ago, back when 24th/28th was originally built and the overpass was put in (around 2017).

The bike/walk trail that will follow SR 167 from the Port of Tacoma to Puyallup has been named the spuyaləpabš Trail by WSDOT and the Puyallup Tribe of Indians.

I like the name, and the confidence WSDOT and the Puyallup Indians have when it comes to it...but I'm not sure the name will catch on. Not its correct pronunciation, anyhow.

Look what I found by the side of the road in Renton, some distance away from the actual project.  (I tried finding the plans online instead, but I don't have the magic touch that the rest of you have.)

Drove by a bit of the tideflats east of Tacoma yesterday and noticed quite a bit of grading and bridgework on the new expressway there. Just a heads up for those who want to check it out (though I didn't have time to hunt for photo spots).
