Link light rail service impacts during Columbia City Station work

Between 6am and 10pm, every second train leaving Northgate and heading south stops at Stadium Station.

SEATTLE — Link light rail drivers should prepare for a two-week service impact while Sound Transit makes improvements at Columbia City Station.

Between August 19 and September 1, the southbound track at the station will be closed to allow for work on the platform. The work involves removing existing platform tiles and replacing them after creating a new surface to which they can reliably adhere, eliminating trip hazards and safety hazards from cracking tiles, Sound Transit said.

The southbound platform at Columbia City Station will be closed during this two-week period. Passengers traveling in both directions will board on the northbound platform. The direction in which the trains arrive at the station is the direction in which the trains continue.

Between 6am and 10pm, every second train leaving Northgate and heading south stops at Stadium Station. Passengers traveling further south must wait an additional 10 minutes before boarding the next southbound train.

To avoid changing trains at Stadium Station, passengers should check train headers and board trains bound for Angle Lake.

Early morning and late evening trains run between Northgate and Angle Lake every 20 minutes.

Sound Transit personnel are available at Stadium Station to assist passengers.

Passengers should keep a close eye on Rider Alerts. During the two-week period, Sound Transit will be in frequent communication with passengers.

Work on Columbia City Station is the first in a series of “Future Ready” projects that will help Sound Transit prepare to more than double the length of the light rail system over the next few years.

Subsequent future-ready work includes electrical work to minimize future disruption to downtown Seattle and work to replace more than three miles of catenary between the Rainier Beach and Tukwila International Boulevard stations to increase reliable train performance.
