This concept reflects an elevated station along 128th St at 8th Ave W.
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.
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.
New 130th St:
A new road would be built at 130th St to provide improved vehicle circulation and pedestrian access from the park and ride to bus rapid transit and light rail.
To provide a safer pedestrian crossing on 128th St, a pedestrian overcrossing would be built.
Turning movements off and onto 128th St would be limited between 4th Ave SW and 8th Ave SW.
Limited turning on 128th St would allow for the ability to have a Greensward. A Greensward is a landscaped pedestrian and bicycle space between the light rail structure and private development.
New 127th St:
A new road at 127th St would provide access to development north of 128th St.
Expanded Park & Ride:
Sound Transit will be adding an additional 500 parking spaces to the existing ~700 spaces as part of ST3.
128th St & I-5 Interchange:
For Swift to operate efficiently, replacement of the existing interchange will be needed in the next 10 years.
A centrally located plaza/park would adjoin the station to provide a focal point for the community.
