This is a video simulation of the Lynnwood Link Extension’s preferred alignment identified by the Sound Transit Board and provides an animated view of the route and stations based on current designs.
The video starts at the Northgate station, heads north through the heart of Shoreline and finishes at the Lynnwood station. None of these stations or rails exist now. The Snohomish County section shows two routes - one along the west side of the freeway and one up the center of the freeway - because they have not decided on the route.
It is an approximation of what the light rail extension might look like once it is built, but is not intended to show every detail and will change as design progresses.
The preferred alternative was identified from a number of options evaluated in the project’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and it enables project staff to focus on advancing designs and refining analysis of environmental impacts and mitigation.
The final decision on the route and stations is expected in 2015 after the Final EIS is published, all alternatives in the Draft EIS are under consideration until then.
