Sound Transit open house Wednesday in Shoreline for Lynnwood Link station and project design

Friday, June 22, 2018

Sound Transit invites you to attend the upcoming Lynnwood Link Extension Shoreline station and project design neighborhood meeting on Wednesday, June 27, 2018. 

At the meeting, you will have the opportunity to hear a presentation about the project and see updated images of the future stations.

This is a required neighborhood meeting to meet two City of Shoreline code requirements for:
  • The Special Use Permit for the project, and 
  • Alteration of geologic hazard areas classified as Very High Risk Landslide Hazard Areas. 

This meeting will provide a forum for Sound Transit and the community to review the proposal and to identify issues to be considered before a special use permit application and critical areas alteration permit applications are submitted to the City of Shoreline. This meeting gives you the opportunity to share with Sound Transit your thoughts and concerns about the proposal.


The light rail alignment within the City of Shoreline’s jurisdiction is proposed to start at the south Shoreline city limits at NE 145th Street and extend north for 3.2 miles to the Shoreline / Mountlake Terrace city limits at NE 205th Street. The light rail guideway will include a combination of at-grade, retained cut and fill, and elevated structures. The project in Shoreline includes:
  • A 33,663 square foot light rail station and garage at 14701 5th Ave NE in Shoreline (Shoreline South / 145th Station). 
  • A 98,900 square foot light rail station and garage at 710 NE 185th St in Shoreline (Shoreline North / 185th Station). 

The project, including the two stations, will be located partially within Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) right-of-way and three City of Shoreline land use zones: R-6 Residential, Mixed Use Residential-45’ (MUR-45’), and MUR-70’. 

The majority of project construction / staging will occur near the stations and light rail corridor; however off-site staging is also intended in the Shoreline School District’s vacant Aldercrest Annex parcel zoned Planned Area 3 (PA-3), located north of Ballinger Way on NE 25th St.
