The following is a press release from the City of Bothell.
In November 2016, Sound Transit is planning on asking voters whether they want to fund more transit projects in the Puget Sound region.
This initiative is known as “Sound Transit 3” (ST3), and Sound Transit has begun a public process to solicit public input on which projects should be part of the ST3 plan. This input process will end on July 8.
Currently, Sound Transit has no plans to construct any transportation improvements along SR 522. The city of Kenmore is concerned that without additional improvements to coincide with the new light rail transit station planned at Northeast 145th Street and Interstate 5 in Shoreline, traffic will increase on SR 522, decreasing speed and reliability.
On Wednesday, June 17, at 7 p.m., the city of Kenmore will host a community meeting to discuss Sound Transit’s future transportation projects. The event will take place at Kenmore City Hall, 18120 – 68th Ave NE, and will include a presentation and discussion portion.
For those who are unable to attend this meeting, Sound Transit has a survey, as well as more information, available at www.soundtransit3.org or visit http://www.ci.bothell.wa.us/.
