Friday, May 19, 2017

Public invited to view designs for two light rail stations opening in 2023 in Shoreline 

Sound Transit will hold an open house on Wednesday, May 24 from 6-8pm at Shorewood High School, 17300 Fremont Ave N, where participants can view designs at the 60 percent completion level for Lynnwood Link Extension light rail stations at NE 145th and NE 185th streets.

At the event, participants will have the opportunity to provide comments on station designs, project plans, public art, corridor design and related projects.

Individuals unable to attend the open house in person can view meeting materials and provide comments online

The 8.5-mile light rail extension from Northgate to the Lynnwood Transit Center is in the final design phase, with construction scheduled to begin in 2018.

Final design offers many opportunities for residents, neighborhood organizations, property owners and businesses to get involved.

Trains will serve four stations along the route at NE 145th St, NE 185th St, the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center at 236th St SW, and the Lynnwood Transit Center at 48th Ave W. The project includes a total of approximately 1,500 additional park-and-ride spaces in the corridor.

Commuters from the Lynnwood Transit Center will enjoy 13-minute rides to Northgate Mall, 18-minute rides to the U District, 27-minute rides to downtown Seattle and 60-minute rides to Sea-Tac Airport.

Trains from Lynnwood will also serve the eastside and reach downtown Bellevue in 51 minutes and the Overlake Transit Center in 59 minutes from the Lynnwood Transit Center.

More information on the Lynnwood Link Extension is available here.

By 2021, Sound Transit will expand light rail to the U District, Roosevelt and Northgate.

In 2023 trains will reach Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood, Mercer Island, Bellevue and Overlake/Redmond.

Next up will be extending light rail to Federal Way and downtown Redmond in 2024.

From there, continuing expansions will focus on Tacoma, West Seattle, Ballard, Everett, South Kirkland and Issaquah, forming a 116-mile regional system.
