Sound Transit To Open Tukwila Station By 12/29/09
According to The Seattle Times, Sound Transit is back on schedule to open its Tukwila airport station by Dec. 29, 2009.
Previously, a federal oversight report claimed that the station’s completion “will be delayed until the second quarter of 2010.”
When that report was released, Sound Transit did not have a detailed schedule for completing the station, and there was doubt as to whether communications systems would be ready for the entire 16-mile line that runs from downtown Seattle to the airport.
During the summer of 2009, trains should start traveling to the Tukwila station. Airport travelers will be able to board shuttle buses to the terminal until the main airport station is completed.
