ST3 Candidate Projects List sets stage for a 2016 ballot

In response to rising congestion and public support for mass transit expansions, work is underway to develop a Sound Transit 3 (ST3) ballot measure for voters to consider in November 2016.

In June and July, the Sound Transit Board asked for input on a draft list of projects to study for possible inclusion in a Sound Transit 3 ballot measure. The response was great - nearly 25,000 online surveys and more than 1,000 written comments.

The Sound Transit Board acted on the input received by approving the ST3 Candidate Projects List. See the ST3 Candidate Projects List and view an interactive map on the ST3 website. 

Each project in the ST3 Candidate Projects List will be studied closely this fall and winter to estimate potential costs, ridership, transit integration, transit-oriented development opportunities and other factors.

In early 2016, after identifying priorities based on study results, the Board is scheduled to publish a draft ST3 plan for additional public feedback before adopting a final ballot measure for voters to consider in November 2016.

On the preliminary list:

Shoreline: N-09 BRT on SR 523/NE 145th St to connect to link station

This project would design and implement BRT on SR 523/NE 145th St between the Link station at I-5 and SR 522. 

Lake Forest Park: N-10 BRT on SR 522/Bothell Way to the vicinity of UW Bothell

This project would design and implement BRT on SR 522 at NE 145th St. to the vicinity of the UW Bothell Campus with parking and access improvements.
