The Everett Link Extension adds six Snohomish County stations to the growing light rail network. The 16.3-mile project extends Link service north from Lynnwood City Center to the SW Everett Industrial Center, SR 526/Evergreen Way, and downtown Everett. Light rail will provide fast, reliable connections along one of the state's most congested freeway corridors. As both the longest and northernmost project in the Sound Transit system, this extension will open in 2036. Sound Transit and partner agencies are laying groundwork together now, with public involvement opportunities starting as early as 2020.
