Sound Transit to hold open houses / public scoping meetings for the I-90 Project

Publish Date

Sound Transit will host three open houses / public scoping meetings in early December to provide information and seek public input on the alternatives under early consideration for the I-90 Project. The purpose of the I-90 Project is to improve two-way transit and carpool operations in the I-90 corridor.

The public is encouraged to attend and provide comments, which will be useful in the environmental scoping process, the initial step in the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
