Light Rail construction begins in 2019
Construction is starting in 2019 for the Lynnwood Link Extension Project. Sound Transit will be building two stations, two garages, and 3.3 miles of track within Shoreline. At the same time, Sound Transit will begin construction in Seattle, Mountlake Terrace, and Lynnwood on the other 5.1 miles and two other stations. Work will continue over the course of five to six years with service scheduled to begin in 2024
How will construction of this project impact our community? Early work will begin in early 2019 to remove trees and vegetation, demolish existing structures, and relocate utilities in preparation for construction of the stations, tracks, and related structures. Construction of the light rail guideway, stations, garages, and related facilities is anticipated to start in mid-2019. Sound Transit will be reaching out directly to adjacent neighborhoods and hosting public meetings in 2019 before early construction activities begin to provide the community with information on what to expect, how light rail is built, and to meet the construction team.
