Sound Transit seeking public comment on Federal Way Transit Center station design

Future Federal Way Link Extension station design is 60% complete.

Sound Transit is looking for your feedback on the Federal Way Transit Center station design for the incoming Federal Way Link Extension light rail project.

A Sound Transit survey seeking public comment is available through Monday, May 10.

The station design is 60% complete and will be the terminus of the new Federal Way Link Extension.

Federal Way Link Extension service will allow passengers to travel south from Angle Lake Station to the three new stations in Des Moines, Kent and Federal Way.

Sound Transit’s survey highlights transit connections, a new local street configuration, art placements and new landscaping for public input.

The online survey is available through May 10 at http://bit.ly/FederalWayTC. The survey is available in English, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese, Somali and Korean.

Kiewit Infrastructure West Company is the design-build contractor for the $3.1 billion project, funded in part by a $790 million grant from the Federal Transit Administration and a $629.5 million Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) loan from the U.S. Department of Transportation, according to Sound Transit.

This fall, Sound Transit will expand light rail to the U District, Roosevelt and Northgate.

In 2022, Tacoma Link will expand to the Hilltop neighborhood. In 2023 trains will reach Mercer Island, Bellevue and the Overlake area.

In addition to the Federal Way Link Extension, 2024 will bring the opening of extensions to Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood and Downtown Redmond.
