Sound Transit service plan anticipates light-rail disruption in 2020
For 10 weeks between January and March, parts of International District/Chinatown Station will close so crews can build rail connections that will allow the East Link extension to serve downtown Seattle and beyond, according to the service plan.
The plan outlines little to no service changes for the Sounder North and South commuter-rail lines.
Sound Transit will hold an Oct. 3 public hearing in Seattle to receive comments on the service plan, which describes revisions proposed for the upcoming budget year, together with preliminary proposals and financial estimates for the subsequent five-year period.
Every September, Sound Transit publicly releases a draft service plan and solicits public comment when major service changes are proposed.
The agency’s service planning department will receive the public comments, propose any revisions, and then present the revised plan to Sound Transit's board for adoption in late October or November.
