Good Turnout for Transit Open House

Sound Transit held the first open house for the S. 200th Street light rail extension on March 2nd at City Hall.  Approximately 150 members of the public attended. Participants were offered information on the proposed route, station elements and public art plan, as well as being invited to submit comments and questions. It is very encouraging to see lake area residents investing their time to get involved and learn more about the proposed changes in their neighborhood. The Sound Transit Board is expected to deliver a project ‘go or no go’ decision in May. If the vote favors moving the project forward an additional public outreach event can be expected in early fall of this year.

Design is underway for the extension of Link light rail between the SeaTac/Airport Station and S. 200th Street.  This project will extend light rail approximately 1.6 miles from S. 176th Street to S. 200th Street, where a station and park-and-ride will be located.
