Snohomish County seeks feedback on light rail station locations

The voter-approved Sound Transit 3 project will bring light rail service to Snohomish County by 2036.

SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. — Snohomish County will launch a series of public houses in hopes that residents will help decide where to place two new light rail stations.

The voter-approved Sound Transit 3 project will bring light rail service to Snohomish County by 2036. Service will extend just north of Lynnwood to Everett via Paine Field.

County officials are hoping to receive feedback about options for two light rail stations in unincorporated areas of the county. Each station has two possible locations that planners with the project are hoping to narrow down.

Officials are considering putting the Mariner Station west of Interstate 5 either on 130th Street or 8th Avenue West.
