OMSF Draft Environmental Impact Statement

Sound Transit and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) published the Link Light Rail Operations and Maintenance Satellite Facility Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) for a 45-day public, agency and tribal review and comment on May 9, 2014. The DEIS evaluates Operations and Maintenance Satellite Facility alternatives and describes the project's potential effects on the environment, nearby properties and other impacts.

Sound Transit held two public meetings, one in Lynnwood and one in Bellevue, which provided stakeholders with an opportunity to give formal public testimony. Comments on the Draft EIS were also accepted by mail and email, and those received prior to the close of comment on June 23, 2014, will be responded to in the Final EIS anticipated during the summer of 2015.
