About the Project
The Prairie Line Trail (PLT) project is converting one mile of the historic Prairie Line railroad corridor, through downtown Tacoma, into a signature public space. The City of Tacoma was awarded a Washington State 2015-2017 Heritage Capital Projects Fund grant for the Prairie Line Trail Historic Interpretation Project, which integrates historic and cultural interpretation and public art along the trail. The project is funding artworks by Matthew Dockrey, Ryan Feddersen, Jessilyn Brinkerhoff/Esteban Camacho Steffensen, Rotator (Mark Alvis/Lance Kagey/Scott Varga), and Haiying Wu.
