Sound Transit Keeps NE 130th Station Option
Yesterday the Sound Transit Board approved plans to extend light rail to Lynwood and Redmond. One of the actions taken was to provide for an eventual stop at NE 130th St. and I-5. Board members from Seattle pushed for this, and a group of advocates for it from Pinehurst and other north end neighborhoods were at the meeting to show support. The NE 130th St. station would not be built in the first implementation of the route, but the tracks will be built on an elevated platform, allowing fairly easy addition of a full station at some future date.
