Sound Transit's contractor continues to make good progress on a new electrical line in the Northgate neighborhood. The line is being relocated in order to construct the Northgate Station.

The new line will run along the west side of I-5 on Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) property. Crews have finished installing the new electrical poles and wire. In the coming weeks, the contractor will remove the existing poles and wire and energize the new line.

Reminder: parking changes at Northgate Transit Center Park-and-Ride

On Oct. 10, a new interim park-and-ride lot (Lot B) opened across the street from the Northgate Transit Center at the southeast corner of NE 100th Street and First Avenue NE. The new interim lot is needed to replace stalls that are occupied by Northgate light rail station construction.

As construction of the station progresses, we’ll keep you informed about additional changes to the park-and-ride.
