Nighttime public address system testing at Northgate Link Stations

Publish Date

On June 25 – 27 from 1 a.m. – 4 a.m., Sound Transit’s contractor will test the public address system inside each station to prepare for the opening of the Northgate Link Extension. Most of the testing will occur inside the stations at the platform level, however a limited number of tests will be conducted at street level. Crews will take precautions to limit noise and avoid disruption to the community. Testing must be done at night to avoid interference with ongoing daytime tests.
