Lynnwood Link Light Rail Extension

Executive Board to take action on project status

The project status of the Sound Transit Lynnwood Link Extension Project will be the primary action at next Thursday's Executive Board meeting.  

Moving this project into approved status is now possible due to the final funding for the project coming into place after key FTA actions this month. The light rail extension will receive $1.2 billion in federal grants and more than $650 million in low-interest deferred payment federal loans. 

The Lynnwood Link Extension project will construct an 8.5 mile extension of Link Light Rail from Northgate to the Lynnwood City center. Traveling primarily along I-5, trains will serve four new stations at NE 145th St, NE 185th St, the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center, and Lynnwood Transit Center. A new parking facility will be constructed at NE 185th, and parking will be added at NE 145th St and the Lynnwood Transit Center, resulting in a net increase of approximately 1,500 new stalls in the corridor. By 2035, the Lynnwood Link Extension is projected to carry over 67,000 riders per day.

The board will also enjoy a presentation from Pat McCarthy, Washington State Auditor and former PSRC President.
