Lewis and Thurston Counties

Lewis County


Lewis County is making plans for the north Lewis County/south Thurston County area to stimulate private investment in industrial development, leading to a new generation of family-wage jobs and economic strength.

Part of the solution is improving access to industrially zoned lands, providing the freight mobility necessary for industrial growth. SCJ is leading the planning study for this portion.

SCJ’s transportation planning and public outreach experience, combined with our established relationships with WSDOT and well-regarded ability to partner effectively with other firms, is being well utilized on this project. We know the project must reflect the needs and character of the community, as well as be successful both quickly and long-term.
