Link riders should prepare for two weeks of service impacts starting August 19

August 16, 2022
Beginning Friday, August 19 through Thursday, September 1, Link passengers should allow more time for trips while Sound Transit undertakes two weeks of work at the Columbia City Station as the agency prepares to more than double the length of the light rail system in the next few years.

To enable platform work at Columbia City Station, the southbound track will close at the station for two weeks. The work includes removing the existing platform tiles and replacing them after establishing a new surface they will reliably adhere to, eliminating tripping hazards and safety risks from cracking tiles.

From 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., every other 1-Line train headed south will terminate at Stadium Station rather than continuing southward on the single open track, which will need to alternate between serving southbound and northbound trains. During this time, Sound Transit personnel will be available at Stadium Station to assist passengers.

Passengers on the trains that terminate at Stadium Station will have to wait approximately 10 minutes before boarding the next train south. Early morning and late evening trains will run at 20-minute frequencies between Northgate and Angle Lake stations.
