The Lynnwood Link extension is a planned Link light rail extension traveling north from Northgate to Lynnwood. The 8.5-mile (13.7 km) light rail extension includes stations in Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, and Shoreline along Interstate 5. Lynnwood Link extension is scheduled to begin construction in 2018 and open for service in 2023. The project was funded by the Sound Transit 2 (ST2) package approved by voters in November 2008.[1] Ridership is expected to be 63,000 to 74,000 daily in 2035.[2]

Route and stations

In April 2015, the final environmental impact statement for the extension was released, and a Record of Decision from the Federal Transit Administration was received in July 2015.[3] The southern limit of the extension will be the Northgate Link station, connecting southward to Northgate Link Extension to Seattle via the University District. The line will parallel Interstate 5, with stations at NE 145th St, NE 185th St, Mountlake Terrace Transit Center, and Lynnwood Transit Center. Accommodations will be in place at NE 130th St and 220th St SW to allow for future infill stations.[2]
