What's the latest?

The Sound Transit Board has identified preferred alternatives and other alternatives to study in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The Draft EIS is the next step in the environmental review process, where we will evaluate potential impacts and benefits of the alternatives on the natural and built environment, and identify potential mitigation measures. The Draft EIS is anticipated to be released in late 2020 for public review and comment.

RSVP for neighborhood forums

Attend a neighborhood forum to learn more about the alternatives we’ll be studying in the Draft EIS, what happens next in the environmental review process and how you can stay engaged! There will also be opportunities to participate in small group activities to discuss how the vision and values of your neighborhood relate to future light rail stations.

If you have questions about which event to attend, reach out to an outreach specialist for more information, wsblink@soundtransit.org or call 206-903-7229.

Let us know if you plan to attend

The West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions will provide fast, reliable light rail connections to dense residential and job centers throughout the region. In addition, a new downtown Seattle light rail tunnel will provide capacity for the entire regional system to operate efficiently. ​
