We’re excited to share dates and details for our next round of community workshops later this summer! Join us at one of the events listed below to get the latest updates on route and station locations and share your feedback. 

We’ll start these events with a brief open house to give you a chance to talk with project staff and check out the latest project details and concepts.

New options for SODO and Chinatown-International District 
In July, both the Stakeholder Advisory Group and Elected Leadership Group met to discuss evaluation results from new route and station alternatives in SODO and the Chinatown-International District. This was in response to recommendations in May from both groups, as well as participants from the first round of neighborhood forums, to take a second look at additional options in these neighborhoods.

Based on feedback from the community and agency partners, the project team went back and developed new alternatives, evaluated them using our Level 1 screening criteria and presented the results to your Stakeholder Advisory and Elected Leadership Groups. Both groups then made recommendations on what should move forward to Level 2 evaluation. 

Review results

Thanks for sharing your feedback!
In late-June, we asked you to share your thoughts about how you’d like to be involved in the planning and design process for this project. We heard from hundreds of you and are currently reviewing all survey responses and comments to understand how we can better connect with communities along the project corridor. 

Thanks to everyone who took the time to add your voice to this survey! We’ll share more about what we heard in the coming weeks.
