Brooklyn Station open house Jan. 27: update on station design
Anyone interested in design options for the Brooklyn Station in the University District, part of Sound Transits North Link, should attend an open house on Thursday, Jan. 27. On the agenda of the meeting are:
- Two underground station design options
- Station access and entrance locations
- Construction plans.
The meeting will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 27, in the second floor auditorium at University Heights Center. The presentation begins at 6:30.
North Link is a key part of the regional mass transit system approved by voters in 2008. The 4.3-mile light rail extension includes stations in the University District (Brooklyn), Roosevelt neighborhood and Northgate. Most of the North Link route will be underground, with the track transitioning to the surface to serve the elevated Northgate Station.
North Link is projected to add over 60,000 daily riders to the Link system, bringing total daily ridership to 176,000 in 2030. Construction of North Link is expected to begin in 2012. Learn more at the Sound Transit website.
