Sound Transit Open House

200th Street Station Open House
Wednesday, March 2nd from 5:00 until 8:00 PM
SeaTac City Hall, Council Chambers

The S. 200th Street light rail extension project will consist of nearly 2 miles of track and a new Link station located near S. 200th Street and 28th Avenue South. Funding to extend the Sound Transit Central Link light rail south from the SeaTac/Airport Station to S. 200th Street was approved by the region's voters in November 2008. In addition to elevated train platforms with covered waiting areas; the project will make several additional enhancements to the area including off-street parking for commuters, improvements to 200th street to better accommodate a bus loop for local bus routes, and kiss-and-ride passenger drop off area. As with other stations along the Link Light Rail route, the 200th street station will integrate the uniqueness of the neighborhood and environmental surroundings into the structural design and public art.

The extended station had originally been targeted for a 2023 opening, however with changing conditions, the Sound Transit organization is assessing whether it may make sense to accelerate plans to accommodate an operational station to be ready as early as 2015! A “Go/No Go” decision to accept the accelerated plan is expected this spring.

As part of the decision process, Sound Transit is hosting an Open House in the SeaTac City Hall Council Chambers on Wednesday, March 2nd from 5-8 PM where the public can express opinion, offer suggestions and get any concerns addressed or questions answered. This is your opportunity to help influence and shape the uniqueness of your neighborhood station. We encourage you to invite your neighbors to come join you at this meeting to ensure your preferences heard.
