Prepare for a commute change on Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail
Beginning January 4, Link light rail will be reduced for ten weeks of construction as the Connect 2020 project builds tracks to connect Seattle to the Eastside. So riders that come up from the south and down from the north will be able to get across the lake.
Crews will be working extensively to also shift the existing tracks and update the signal system. As a result trains will run at a reduced frequency of every 12 minutes, which is expected to have a heavy impact on the 80,000 daily light rail riders.
