Project update: Lynnwood Link Extension

Jul 28, 2017

Permanent station names adopted

On Thursday, July 27, the Sound Transit Board adopted the permanent names for the four stations of the Lynnwood Link Extension.

From south to north:

  • Shoreline South/145th
  • Shoreline North/185th
  • Mountlake Terrace
  • Lynnwood City Center

A significant amount of public input was received on station names for the Lynnwood Link Extension. We received more than 7,500 station naming suggestions at 30 percent station design open house meetings in Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, and Lynnwood in November 2016, and through an online survey in April 2017. Thank you so much for your input – it helped us reach this important decision!

60 percent design open houses completed in Shoreline and Mountlake Terrace

We wanted to extend a thank you to community members who attended our open house meetings in Shoreline and Mountlake Terrace on May 24 and June 28. The open house meetings offered opportunities for the community to get involved by having conversations directly with project staff. An online open house was also available between May 24 and July 28 for those that could not make the in-person meetings and wanted to review and comment on the latest station designs. Overall, more than 3,200 community members participated in the 60 percent final design open houses so far.

Design work at the Lynnwood Transit Center has required more intensive coordination than anticipated between our project partners at the City of Lynnwood, Community Transit, Washington State Department of Transportation and Sound Transit Express Bus. A station design open house meeting for Lynnwood is anticipated to take place this fall as the project continues through the final design phase.
