Sound Transit hosting open houses on Federal Way Link Extension project

Sound Transit is entering its next phase of the Federal Way Link Extension project, with construction starting in 2019.

In this phase, Sound Transit is looking for a design-build contractor, who will design and build the alignment of three station areas.

Sound Transit is currently exploring station area concepts to include in the design and wants the input of the public on the character of the three new stations.

The three new stations are located near Kent Des Moines Road, South 272nd Street and the Federal Way Transit Center.

Sounds Transit is asking residents to share their thoughts on the look of the stations and what they want the new feeling and look to convey.

The stations are used by the city, and Sound Transit wants the design to reflect the goals and priorities of the community.

The public can offer their thoughts at two open houses. The first will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Sept. 13 at the Federal Way Community Center, 876 S. 333rd St. The next will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 16 at Highline College Building 2, 2400 S. 240th St. Residents are invited to offer input, learn about the project and have questions answered by the project team.

Sound Transit is also offering an online survey at The survey is live through Sept. 22.
