What is early scoping?

Early scoping is work needed to prepare for the environmental review process. During this time, Sound Transit is seeking public and agency input on alignment and station location alternatives. Read the Early Scoping Information Report to learn more about this process.

Early scoping comments will be accepted through March 5. Comments received will be documented in the Early Scoping Summary Report.

Helpful scoping comment-writing tips:

  • Provide input on the representative project and potential alternatives.
  • Comment on the purpose and need of the project.
  • Help identify and provide feedback on potential project benefits and impacts on your community, the environment and transportation.

Your feedback is vital in developing and narrowing project alternatives.
