Riders who require the use of an elevator can plan ahead to board or exit SR-520 transit service at the Clyde Hill/Yarrow Point Freeway Station instead.

Riders already in transit who require elevator service may inform their driver, and Metro will arrange alternative transportation. 

Every effort is being made to restore the elevator as soon as possible.

Starting June 14, 2019, WSDOT construction along SR-520 will close the Montlake Freeway Station. This closure affects routes 540, 541, 542, 545, 555 and 556.

Sounder train

Be prepared for possible delays  due to freight interference as a result of a Union Pacific derailment and flooding in the Midwest.

Union Pacific had a freight train derail on Friday, March 15, near Ritzville, Washington.  This was a 23 car event that included a hazardous cargo spill and subsequent fire.  At this moment there is no estimated time for reopening the UP line.  All UP trains have been re-routed to BNSF tracks causing additional traffic and congestion throughout their system.  We expect this to be resolved within a few days.

Flooding in the Midwest has shut down multiple BNSF and Union Pacific subdivisions and trains are being re-routed in an unpredictable manner (waves) through our area.  Seattle/Tacoma are the main ports to China and the number of trains arriving are creating capacity challenges for the ports, rail yards and storage tracks along the alignment.  The FRA declared an emergency event on Tuesday due to the extreme impact on the railroads.  Some estimates indicate this will last for several months.  BNSF and UP are working aggressively to make repairs and re-open lines where possible.
