Seaway bus shelters

The bus stop shelters at Seaway Transit Center will soon receive canopies. More shelters will be installed over the next two weeks.

Seaway Transit Center

Construction Continues During Holiday Week

Crews will be on-site Dec. 27-28 to install more bus shelters, several shelter canopies and lighting.

No more lane closures are scheduled for Seaway Blvd. Single-lane closures may occur on 75th St. early next year on an as-needed basis. 

In early January, the transit center will host a large test of the site, coordinating buses from Community Transit, Sound Transit, King County Metro and Everett Transit.

Testing will continue for several weeks across the Swift Green Line route in preparation for its March 24 launch.

Swift Green Line Station Construction

Station Construction Pauses for Holidays at 80 Percent Completion

Construction of the Swift Green Line's 33 stations is 80 percent complete as crews prepare to take time off for the holidays.

The Canyon Park structure construction will continue during the holidays, except for Dec. 25 and Jan. 1.

All other station construction crews will finish installing ticket vending machines and information kiosks at a few more stations today, then be off of work until Jan. 3.

During the holiday break, all construction sites will be checked at least once a day to ensure that all barrels, fencing and equipment are safely positioned.

Information about the Swift Green Line stations is online at www.communitytransit.org/SwiftStations.

Swift Green Line Establishes High-Capacity Network

When the Swift Green Line launches on March 24, it will establish Snohomish County’s first high-capacity transit network by connecting with the Swift Blue Line at Hwy 99 & Airport Rd.

The network will eventually include more Swift lines, including an east-west Orange Line and a northern Red Line (see map at right). Plans are also in place for Blue and Green Line extensions.

The bus rapid transit network is designed to serve the county's biggest employment centers and most congested traffic corridors.

When Link light rail arrives in 2024, the Swift network will bring thousands of Snohomish County residents to light rail stations every day.
