Making room for light rail 

Before we begin construction of the light rail infrastructure that will carry passengers from Northgate to Lynnwood in 2024, several activities are underway to establish work zones. Installation of temporary noise barriers began this month, prior to the removal of existing noise walls. Neighbors and I-5 commuters will see acoustical curtains installed on fences going up in the coming weeks. Additional details on locations and timing of this work will be shared in area-specific construction alerts.   

In addition to noise wall removal, clearing, grading, and utility relocations are progressing. Though clearing and grading work does involve removing trees, the reduction is only temporary. Recognizing that communities strongly support trees and the benefits they provide, Sound Transit has committed to replanting new trees at a rate of nearly four new trees for each removed tree.
