Sound Transit to host open house on Kent Station parking and access improvements
Sound Transit will conduct an open house from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, October 18 at Green River College, Kent Campus - Room 283, 417 Ramsey Way. The public is invited to view early concepts for the parking garage layout and learn about potential walking, bicycling, and transit improvements.
People unable to attend the event can participate in an online open house at soundtransit.org/kent-access-improvements
The online open house will be available through October 26.
In the 2008 Sound Transit 2 ballot measure, voters approved funding for improving commuter access to Sounder train stations. Kent station improvements include a new parking garage and enhanced connections for pedestrians, cyclists and transit users.
Sound Transit is currently in environmental review and preliminary design for the project. The new parking garage is scheduled to open in 2023.
