February 2011 heralds the opening of the new Mountlake Terrace Freeway Station, built by Midmountain Contractors, Inc with the support of WSDOT and Sound Transit. This 40.9 Million dollar project will allow Sound Transit buses to serve the freeway station and provide a greater number of service routes to the area.
On September 7th, after a commuter comment period between August 19th and September 6th, the City of Mountlake Terrace Planning Commission submitted recommendations regarding the upcoming changes, seen below in summary.
112 – Expand route to serve the Transit Center
130 – Move route from 58th Ave W to 56th Ave W
408 – Discontinue service
413 – Endorses the route to provide service to Melody Hill
414 – No opinion as MLT would not be greatly affected. This route is proposed to be rerouted through the Freeway Station.
415 – Endorses the route to provide service to Melody Hill
477 – Opposed to the removal of this route, but if removed service to the Transit Center would be replaced by the 111 local route in Brier and the 112 in Mountlake Terrace.
These changes will be voted on at the October 7th board meeting.
