Light rail service delays April 23 - 25
Switch heaters installed on tracks near Operations and Maintenance Base
Sound Transit contractors will finish installing light rail track switch heaters this weekend on the main tracks near the Link light rail Operations and Maintenance Facility. Link trains will be delayed starting Friday, April 23 at 10 p.m. through the start of service Monday morning at 5 a.m.
Trains will need to operate on a single track between SODO Station and Columbia City Station to ensure a safe area for the work. Trains will operate approximately every 20 - 30 minutes instead of the usual 10 - 15 minute weekend schedule while the work is being done.
Riders boarding at Beacon Hill and Mount Baker Stations will be directed to a different platform than the one they normally board from. Riders should follow signage at the stations. Staff will be on hand to assist and direct passengers to the correct platform.
