Sound Transit seeks public comment on Federal Way Transit Center station design
Future Link station design is 60% complete
Sound Transit is seeking public comments on the design for the future Link light rail station at the Federal Way Transit Center. The station design is now 60% complete and will be the terminus of the new Federal Way Link Extension. This new light rail service will bring passengers south from Angle Lake to Des Moines, Kent and Federal Way. The survey will highlight transit connections, a new local street configuration, art placements and new landscaping.
The online survey will be available starting today through May 10 at http://bit.ly/FederalWayTC. The survey will be available in English, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese, Somali and Korean.
Kiewit Infrastructure West Company is the design-build contractor for the $3.1 billion project, which is funded in part by a $790 million grant from the Federal Transit Administration and a $629.5 million Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) loan from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
This fall, Sound Transit will expand light rail to the U District, Roosevelt and Northgate. In 2022, Tacoma Link will expand to the Hilltop neighborhood. In 2023 trains will reach Mercer Island, Bellevue and the Overlake area. In addition to the Federal Way Link Extension, 2024 will bring the opening of extensions to Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood and Downtown Redmond.
