Shoreline South/145th is a planned elevated station on Sound Transit's Lynnwood Link Extension, part of the Link Light Rail system. It will be located at the intersection of Interstate 5 and State Route 523 (NE 145th Street) in Shoreline and will open in 2024 with the rest of the line.

The interchange is currently home to a flyer stop used by King County Metro and Sound Transit Express routes.

Location

Shoreline South/145th station will be located adjacent to Interstate 5 at State Route 523 (NE 145th Street), which is situated between the cities of Seattle and Shoreline. The preferred alternative describes an elevated station located in the northeast corner of the reconstructed interchange, attached to a 500-stall parking garage.[2][3]

In August 2016, Sound Transit moved the station's location approximately 400 feet (120 m) north of the initial site, to improve bus connections.[4]

History

The Northeast 145th Street flyer stop was built by Metro Transit in 1979, with thru ramps for both northbound and southbound buses. An additional set of ramps allows buses entering and exiting I-5 via SR 523 to serve the flyer stops.[5][6]
