Sound Transit begins field observation and testing for northend Link Extension project

Over the next several months, Sound Transit says that residents may notice project staff conducting field observation and testing in neighborhoods along the Interstate 5 corridor between Northgate and Lynnwood for the Lynnwood Link Extension project.

Field activities during this period include traffic observation and counts, natural resource and land use study, and area photography. This work is being completed as the project prepares for the environmental review phase of the project and Draft Environmental Impact Statement to be published in mid-2013.

All work will be completed during normal business hours within the public right-of-way and access to private property will not be necessary. Vehicular access will be maintained at all times and traffic disruption is not anticipated.

Residents with questions about field observation and testing or the project are encouraged to call Sound Transit and avoid approaching field staff with inquiries as they complete their work.

For more information about testing or the project contact Roger Iwata, Community Outreach Corridor Lead, at 206-689-4904 or
