Sound Transit later this fall will begin construction at Puyallup Station in the state of Washington to improve pedestrian access and bicycle connections to the Sounder South commuter-rail line. 

Station improvements will include sidewalk and bicycle enhancements, and construction of a parking garage and surface parking lot. 

Sound Transit is also contributing $3.8 million to the city of Puyallup for street lighting, curb ramps and other pedestrian safety improvements as well as new bicycle lanes on West Stewart Avenue.

Hensel Phelps was selected in 2019 as the project's design-build contractor.

Sound Transit earlier this week opened an online portal through Dec. 3 to educate riders on building designs, construction impacts and the scope of the project.
