Update on Edmonds
Edmonds Sounder Station                        

This spring, Sound Transit gathered public input about the best ways to improve access to Edmonds and Mukilteo Sounder Stations. Options could include additional parking; better walking, biking and transit connections; and convenient pickup and drop-off areas. Thank you to the many Edmonds residents who participated! We heard from many of you that parking and vehicle access, along with better transit connections are a priority. For more details, read the outreach summary.

What’s next? Sound Transit is working with the cities of Edmonds and Mukilteo to identify specific options for improving access. Stay tuned for public outreach this fall where we’ll provide details and ask for your input. Stay informed - sign up for project updates. Have questions? Contact us: EMSounder@soundtransit.org.

ST UOE SummerAnd keep in mind that weekend Sounder trains are not just for sports fans. Sound Transit runs Sounder trains from Everett to Seattle (stopping at Edmonds and Mukilteo) on many weekend day games when the Mariners, Sounders FC or Seahawks are in town. You don’t have to attend the game to ride the train – take the opportunity to explore Seattle for a few hours without having to drive! Sounder arrives at King Street Station in historic Pioneer Square and is across the street from the International District-Chinatown Station for easy access to Link light rail. For more details and information on how to ride, check our blog post. Upcoming game trains include July 21, July 28, August 10, August 11, and September 15.

Lynnwood Link Update

Early work is currently underway for the Lynnwood Link Extension. This work includes utility relocation, demolition and tree removal. (Sound Transit will be planting more than 20,000 trees to replace the 5,300 it will remove for construction of the guideway.) In preparation for construction, the North Jackson park-and-ride has been closed, with temporary parking for commuters nearby. Temporary detours and changes to parking at the Lynnwood City Center are expected to begin this month.

Groundbreaking on the construction of the 8.5 mile guideway is anticipated this fall. The extension will have four stations: Shoreline South/145th, Shoreline North/185th, Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood City Center. Construction will continue through 2024, with revenue service planned to start in July 2024. When the Lynnwood Link Extension opens, riders will be able to rely upon efficient, traffic-free travel from Lynnwood to downtown Seattle in just 28 minutes.
