From early 2018 through spring 2019, Sound Transit completed the alternatives development phase of the West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions project, which explored various route and station location options. To help identify preferred alternatives and other alternatives to study in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), Sound Transit worked with a Stakeholder Advisory Group and an Elected Leadership Group. These groups met regularly throughout the alternatives development phase to review technical information and public feedback and provided recommendations to the Sound Transit Board as alternatives moved through the evaluation and screening process.
The Sound Transit Board has identified preferred alternatives and other alternatives to study in a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The project is now in environmental review.
