Sound Transit is preparing to build new tracks connecting the East Link light rail line to downtown Seattle at International District/Chinatown Station. Connect 2020 is the safety-intensive operations plan being developed to complete this work.  

When construction is complete, the tunnel will be ready to provide thousands more riders each day congestion-free service across an expanding light rail system that will include destinations to the Eastside in 2023 and up and down the I-5 corridor.

To learn more about Connect 2020, how it will impact riders and how Sound Transit is responding to these impacts check out The Platform for a more in-depth look at the project.
