Public invited to view designs for light rail station opening in 2023
Sound Transit will hold an open house on Wednesday, June 28 from 6-8 p.m. at Nile Shrine Country Club, 6601 244th St. S.W., where participants can view designs at the 60 percent completion level for the Lynnwood Link Extension light rail station at 236th Street Southwest.
At the event, participants will have the opportunity to provide comments on station designs and the latest project plans.
Individuals unable to attend the open house in person can view meeting materials online and provide comments at lynnwoodlink.participate.online.
The 8.5-mile light rail extension from Northgate to the Lynnwood Transit Center is in the final design phase, with construction scheduled to begin in 2018. Trains will serve four stations along the route at Northeast 145th Street, Northeast 185th Street, the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center at 236th Street Southwest, and the Lynnwood Transit Center at 48th Avenue West.
Commuters from the Lynnwood Transit Center will enjoy 13-minute rides to Northgate Mall, 18-minute rides to the U District, 27-minute rides to downtown Seattle and 60-minute rides to Sea-Tac Airport. Trains from Lynnwood will also serve the eastside and reach downtown Bellevue in 51 minutes and the Overlake Transit Center in 59 minutes from the Lynnwood Transit Center.
More information on the Lynnwood Link Extension is available at soundtransit.org/LLE.
By 2021, Sound Transit will expand light rail to the U District, Roosevelt and Northgate. In 2023 trains will reach Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood, Mercer Island, Bellevue and Overlake/Redmond. Next up will be extending light rail to Federal Way and downtown Redmond in 2024. From there, continuing expansions will focus on Tacoma, West Seattle, Ballard, Everett, South Kirkland and Issaquah, forming a 116-mile regional system.
