Please note the information below about other service impacts in Metro’s service area.

Sounders FC game Wednesday, August 3 – 7:00 PM at

Although no Metro or Metro operated Sound Transit service is rerouted because of this event, expect possible delays due to traffic volumes in the SODO, Stadium, Pioneer Square & downtown Seattle areas.

Evergreen Point Bridge Park-and-Ride on State Route 520 was moved to a new temporary location.

As of Monday, July 25, Metro Transit’s Evergreen Point Bridge
Park-and-Ride on State Route 520 was moved to a new temporary
location and the number of parking spaces has been reduced.

This location will be used for about two years to allow for construction of the Washington State Department of Transportation’s (WSDOT) Eastside Transit and HOV Project.

The new temporary lot is located just north of the original P&R on the north  side of SR-520 at Evergreen Point Road and NE 32nd Street in Medina.

Capacity at the temporary lot is reduced from 50 to 19 stalls due to limited space and to avoid cutting down six mature trees.  When the new park-and-ride opens in 2013, the 50 stall capacity will be restored.

Mount Baker Station elevators to and from the southbound platform are out of service.

The elevators to and from the Mount Baker Station southbound platform are out of service until further notice.

Until repairs are made, southbound passengers who require the use of the elevator and want to board at Mount Baker should ride instead north to Beacon Hill and transfer to a southbound train.

Passengers who want to exit at Mount Baker should ride to Columbia City and transfer to a northbound train.

Thank you for joining us today.

We will return at 6:00 AM on Tuesday to help keep an
Eye on Your Metro Commute.

Travel safely and have a pleasant evening.
