The Pierce Transit Lakewood Base serves the entire bus fleet of Pierce Transit, as well as over 100 Sound Transit vehicles that are operated and maintained alongside Pierce Transit buses. Huitt-Zollars has been engaged to manage a phased improvement approach for the Pierce Transit Lakewood Base in order to address the unmet needs of the current fleet and to provide additional capacity for projected fleet growth through 2040. Throughout construction, which could take six to ten years, the base will continue its full operations. This unique challenge is being overcome by implementing a series of phased projects that increase the vehicle parking, fuel and wash, and maintenance capacity of the existing base while also bringing the facility up to contemporary safety and operational standards.
