Tacoma Link light rail open house Jan. 9

Sound Transit will host an open house in January to continue its discussion of expansion plans for Tacoma’s Link light rail.

In May, Sound Transit Board of Directors identified the North Downtown Central Corridor (Hilltop via the Stadium District) as the preferred corridor for the potential expansion of Tacoma Link light rail. Sound Transit, in cooperation with the City of Tacoma and Pierce Transit, is now beginning the next phase of the project to further define and evaluate route alignments in the corridor.

An open house will be held on Thurs., Jan. 9, between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Stadium High School, Auxiliary Gym, 111 N. ‘E’ St., in Tacoma. Visitors will have an opportunity to learn how specific route alignments respond to evaluation criteria; weigh in on which alignments should be studied for further environmental review; and hear about next steps for the Tacoma Link Expansion Project. Individuals interested in the issue are encouraged to take an online survey to provide feedback on specific route alignments at soundtransit.org/tacomalinkexpansion.
