Overnight rail maintenance work happening in Rainier Valley
As early as September 25, Sound Transit will be rail grinding and polishing along the Link light rail tracks from South Walden Street & Martin Luther King Jr. Way to South Othello Street & Martin Luther King Jr. Way.
The work will improve safety, reduce long-term maintenance costs, lower noise and vibration levels, and produce a smoother rail surface.
We expect this work to take up to two weeks, completing on October 9. The schedule may vary depending on rail conditions.
The grinding machine operates in different areas from 11 p.m.- 4 a.m. Sunday through Friday morning (no work on Friday or Saturday nights).
When work is happening, refueling vehicles, generators and maintenance crews are stationed in the areas where the work is taking place.
