Project update

130th Infill In Progress

NE 130th St Infill Station design approaches final approvals, with station finishes construction to begin in fall 2023

Advanced construction delivery continues

Current construction at NE 130th St Infill Station is focused on the concrete platform and canopy structural steel. This work will be completed prior to electrification of the Lynnwood Link Extension overhead traction power, which allows operational testing prior to Lynnwood Link’s projected opening in July 2024. The the Board approved the advanced delivery of the NE 130th Street Infill Station, which reduces construction risks and disruption of operations for Lynnwood Link that may be necessary when working next to operating train service. Platform canopy and elevator shaft structural construction will be completed late summer 2023, to be followed by handoff to a separate contractor that will complete station construction.

NE 130th Infill Station finishes package ready for approval based on final design

The station finishes contract was issued for bid this spring and includes construction of station finishes and plaza and roadway improvements. This final station construction work is anticipated to begin in October 2023. The final station contract is pending Q2/Q3 board action from the Sound Transit Board.

The station design reflects the unique identity of this neighborhood as an urban oasis, the community’s desire for a modern design, and pride in nearby natural resources of Thornton Creek. The design incorporates color and art, seating areas, native landscaping, and other natural elements. You can learn more about the station design process and see the latest design renderings on our station design page:

Preparing in the community for additional construction this fall

Construction of station finishes, streetscape, and roadway improvements is anticipated to take approximately two years to complete, with the NE 130th Infill Station opening in Q2 2026. Additional information about the construction schedule and sequence will be available later this summer as our  new contractor is brought on board. We will be out in the community to share additional information at events this summer, and host a pre-construction open house event for neighbors and community members to share more about what to expect during construction, how to stay informed about the latest construction activities, and how to reach us.
