Preferred Alternative

Yesterday, Sound Transit released a video simulation of the preferred alternative alignment of North Link. The alignment simulated runs from Northgate to Lynnwood. In sum, the preferred alternative would consist of:

  1. Track running west I-5 on the segment north of the Mountalke Terrace Station;
  2. An option to locate a station at 220th St SW nestled just west of I-5; and
  3. Elevated track crossing the wetland area south of the Lynnwood Tranist Center (C3 Modified) and final station elevated corner to the current bus bays.

The alignment would be a mix of trenching, elevated, and at-grade (but separated from other traffic) portions.
