Sound Transit Link Extension

Sound Transit has several voter-approved expansion projects underway. You may have noticed significant work taking place in Tacoma’s Stadium and Hilltop areas. These are part of the Hilltop Tacoma Link Extension, which more than doubles the length of the Tacoma Link.

This project begins with a relocated Theater District station and adds six new stations along the route. These connect to popular destinations such as the Stadium District, Wright Park and major medical facilities before reaching the new Hilltop neighborhood terminus.

We are proud to be part of this project, relocating 2.4 miles of water and power utilities. Some of the existing underground pipes are 100 years old, so this opportunity for improvements will provide more reliable services. You can learn more about this project and sign up for updates on the Sound Transit website.

Support local businesses during the project

During the project, we encourage you to continue visiting the businesses in the area. When you visit your local neighborhood restaurants, shops and services, you not only get a unique experience, you connect with your community. Visit local businesses during construction and help keep our community vibrant.

Learn more about these businesses by visiting Sound Transit’s “Loyal to Local” website page.
