Sound Transit’s endeavor to extend the light rail to Highline is still projected to be completed on time, even in the wake of financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Federal Way-bound project, which began in 2020 and will include a station near Highline, came to an abrupt yet short-lived halt in the early days of the ongoing global health crisis.
South 272nd Street in Kent will undergo several lane closures starting Dec. 8.
Sound Transit is still on track to complete their Highline-bound expansion as scheduled, even in an era disrupted by the ongoing global health crisis.
The nearly 8-mile long project broke ground in early 2020, and will include stations near Highline and in Federal Way. The expansion is still expected to be completed by 2024, as the COVID-19 pandemic has caused minimal delay.
