Sound Transit seeking feedback on Ballard Link further studies
Members of the public asked to weigh in on concepts under study online and in person
Members of the public can learn about concepts being studied in the Ballard Link Extension project, and provide feedback on further studies in the CID, Downtown, and Interbay/Ballard segments by completing an online survey or attending an in-person drop-in event.
The survey, at https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/7154823/WSBLE-Further-Studies, is open through February 17. Surveys in Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Vietnamese and Spanish are also available at wsblink.participate.online.
Those who would like to ask questions and provide feedback in person are invited to attend a drop-in session at Union Station, 401 South Jackson Street.
- Wednesday, Feb. 8 – 3 to 7 p.m.
More information about this drop-in opportunity is available at wsblink.participate.online. Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, and Spanish interpretation will be available. Light refreshments will be provided. Masks are encouraged, but not required.
The Sound Transit Board identified a preferred alternative for the West Seattle Link Extension in July 2022, after reviewing the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and comments from Tribes, the public and agency partners. At that time, the Board directed staff to conduct further studies and community engagement before identifying a preferred alternative for the Ballard Link Extension.
Since then, Sound Transit staff have hosted a series of community events and briefings to share information and gather feedback about the further studies. The online survey and February 8 in-person event will provide a final opportunity for people to give feedback that will be presented to the Board at the end of February to inform a potential action on a preferred alternative for the Ballard Link Extension in March.
