Sound Transit recently published a Station Planning Progress Report showcasing preliminary station design concepts for the ST3 West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions project. Sound Transit consulted partner agencies including the City of Seattle, King County Metro, and the Port of Seattle to advance their approach to station design for Seattle’s largest-ever light rail investment, scheduled to open in 2032 (West Seattle) and 2037 (Ballard). The planning report supplements the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions project.
While the DEIS studies the potential benefits and impacts of each alternative, this progress report captures Sound Transit’s latest thinking about how people who walk, roll, bike, and ride transit will access the stations and how the stations might fit into the surrounding neighborhoods.

- West Seattle Link stations (SODO, Delridge, Avalon, Alaska Junction)
- Ballard Link stations (Chinatown International District, Midtown, Westlake, Denny, South Lake Union, Seattle Center, Smith Cove, Interbay, Ballard)
