Link light rail to single track late Wednesday night between Rainier Beach and Tukwila International Boulevard Stations

Trains will be running every 32 minutes between Rainier Beach and Angle Lake from 9 p.m. and end of revenue service; service north of Rainier Beach will be unaffected

Publish Date

Due to necessary track repair work, Link light rail trains will be single tracking between Rainier Beach and Tukwila International Boulevard stations tomorrow evening, January 25, starting at 9 p.m. until end of service. The work is needed to complete repairs to a cracked rail discovered last week.

Because of the single tracking, trains between Rainier Beach and Angle Lake stations will be running every 32 minutes during this time. Service between Northgate and Rainier Beach stations will be unaffected. Passengers traveling southbound will be required to transfer at Rainier Beach to another train and may have to wait up to 25 minutes for a transfer.

Passengers traveling in either direction through the area should allow for at least an additional 30 minutes of travel time. Information about other alternative routes that passengers may want to consider is available on our website.

A language line is available to provide translation assistance for limited English proficiency persons at 800-823-9230.

Efforts will continue to prioritize serving riders who depend on Sound Transit’s services, including seniors, people with disabilities, Title VI protected populations (race, color, national origin), low-income and limited-English-proficiency populations.
