Upcoming weekend Link closures a good chance to try biking + Last chance to take station access survey

Graphic showing that a bus will serve each station between Sodo and Capitol Hill.In order to complete work necessary to connect the existing light rail line to the under-construction East Link line, Sound Transit will not operate trains between Capitol Hill and Sodo Stations for three upcoming weekends: October 12-13, October 26-27, and November 9-10.

There will be a free bus serving the stations during the closure, but it could also be a good excuse to try biking if that works for your trip.

And this weekend work is just a warning of larger challenges to come. Crews will be building a temporary center platform at Pioneer Square Station that Link trains will use during a very tough ten weeks starting in January. Trains will remain in operation during “Connect 2020,” but passengers will have to change trains at Pioneer Square Station. Not only that, but there will be fewer trains than usual. And people with bikes will have to exit at University Street Station (if southbound) or International District/Chinatown Station (if northbound) because there are concerns that there will not be room on the temporary platform.

So these upcoming weekend closures could be good practice for January for anyone who currently relies on taking a bike on Link through downtown.

Take this survey today

Today (August 23) is also the final day to submit comments to Sound Transit’s station access survey. Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is encouraging people to give the two Seattle projects in the North King Subarea a high (3) rating.
