Community members can also learn more about the North Link project by visiting www.soundtransit.org and are encouraged to sign up for project updates by contacting Brooke Belman at (206) 398-5238 or belmanb@soundtransit.org.

In the coming year Sound Transit will complete preliminary engineering for North Link, issue a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, and identify cost estimates as well as construction financing and timeline options.

North Link will expand the Central Link initial segment that is now under construction, serving some of the state's largest employment and population areas. By 2030, the entire Central Link line is expected to serve more than 150,000 riders daily, making it one of the nation's most effective new transportation systems.
