Montlake Blvd. Sidewalk Revision
Beginning the week of February 16, 2010, Sound Transit's contractor started work to replace the sidewalk and install a manhole along Montlake Blvd. at the Pacific Street intersection. The contractor will demolish the existing sidewalk and establish a temporary sidewalk, using concrete barriers to separate the pedestrian/bicyclist from automotive traffic (see attached map). The work is scheduled to finish Saturday, February 27.
What is University Link?
University Link is the 3.15-mile extension of light rail from downtown Seattle to the University of Washington. U-Link includes twin-bore tunnels and two stations, one at Capitol Hill (Broadway and East John Street) and the other on the University of Washington campus at Husky Stadium. Local tax funding for U-Link was approved by voters and the project also received a $813 million Federal Transit Administration grant.
U-Link is projected to add 70,000 daily riders to the Link system, bringing total daily ridership to 114,000 in 2030. Construction of U-Link began in early 2009 and will continue over the next six years. Passenger service is scheduled to begin in 2016.
