Key Features

This concept reflects an underground station located east of I-5.

Below is an explanation of the key features or infrastructure needed to make this concept possible. This concept is representative of one possible future outcome; it does not intend to indicate what the actual key features of this area will be in the future.

Station Location:

The blue shadowing on the station area map represents an area the station could be located in. Final decisions on the actual station location and track alignment will be made by Sound Transit.

Interurban Trail Crossing:

A potential Interurban Trail crossing would be built below 164th St.

Direct Access Ramp Completion:

The current HOV direct access from southbound I-5 would be extended to both sides of I-5 creating an overcrossing to provide bus, bike and pedestrian connection over I-5.

New Road – 162nd St:

This road would provide a secondary connection between Larch Way and the light rail station and provide additional local circulation and pedestrian connections.

New Road – 14th Pl W & 163rd St:

By breaking up the blocks on the east side of I-5, pedestrians will have better connectivity.

Turns in/out of 164th St from 14th Pl W would be limited to right only.

Light Rail Track:

The at-grade light rail track would transition to underground (cut and cover) south of 164th St and switch to elevated north of the station area prior to crossing I-5 between approximately 136th St and 144th St.
