In September, Sound Transit will be hosting a neighborhood forum and open house to provide the latest information about the route and station locations proposed for the Ballard light rail extension. The meeting will be held on Monday, September 17 from 5:30pm to 8pm at the Ballard Eagleson VFW (2812 NW Market St).
Sound Transit has been gathering public opinion about the potential route and stations; click on the map above to see comments.
The meeting will start with an open house and will provide an opportunity for participants to talk with project staff and learn about the updated project details and concepts for the Smith Cove, Interbay and Ballard stations. Sound Transit will then provide a brief presentation about the planned light rail route development. After the open house, there will be optional small-group discussions to share insights with neighbors and project staff.
Sound Transit is still in the planning phase for the project; they estimate that light rail service to Ballard will begin in 2035. To learn more about the project in its entirety, click here.
