FTA and the Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority (Sound Transit) will prepare an SEIS on a new light rail alternative route in the City of Tukwila known as the Tukwila Freeway Route. The Tukwila Freeway Route alternative was proposed by the City of Tukwila and follows East Marginal Way, State Route 509, Interstate-5, and State Route 518, mostly using an elevated configuration within existing freeway right-of-way. Stations are proposed at (1) Boeing Access Road and (2) South 154th Street, which would include a 670-stall park-and-ride lot. This 5.5 mile alternative route would bypass the adopted route along Tukwila International Boulevard (State Route 99) and be completely within exclusive right-of-way.Start Signature
