Sound Transit begins Hilltop Tacoma Link construction
Crews will close roads north of Division Avenue and at Tacoma Avenue to work simultaneously on track installation, foundations for Link power poles and street lighting, underground sewer and stormwater utilities and new pavement, according to a Sound Transit press release.
Construction will continue through Sept. 4.
The Hilltop Tacoma Link will more than double the length of the Tacoma Link and add six new stations. The project also will expand an operations and maintenance facility to accommodate five light-rail vehicles. The $217 million extension is expected to open for operation in 2020.
