Fresh pics: Take a 360 photo tour of new Northgate Link light rail stations

U District, Roosevelt and Northgate stations opening in September

Publish Date

We're in the home stretch on the Northgate Link Extension

Today we announced that the new stations in the Northgate, Roosevelt and University District neighborhoods are substantially complete

Back in December we rolled out a 360-degree photo tour of U District Station; today we've got new photo tours of Northgate and Roosevelt stations. 

Work on the line has shifted to completing and testing the communications and fire/life/safety systems and testing trains along the 4.3 mile extension. 

We're still working out opening day details - please subscribe to The Platform and follow our social channels to stay in the know. 

The 360-degree photos below correspond with the callouts on the station illustrations.

The Northgate and Roosevelt photos are from early January, the U District shots are from last October. 

Use your fingers or mouse to look around the individual shots, no special viewer or software needed.

They're amazing and we look forward to taking you to more place as we emerge from the pandemic and get back to normal this year (fingers crossed).

Want to jump right into full 360 photo galleries? Here's the full gallery for Northgate, Roosevelt and U District.
