Metro’s Monday evening commute wrap-up; plus upcoming events that may impact service

Metro’s Monday evening commute is winding down with no significant delays or disruptions in transit service to report.

The Evergreen Point Bridge P&R on SR-520 has moved
As of 7/25/11, the Evergreen Point Bridge P&R was moved to a new temporary location and the number of parking spaces was 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 & 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 Rd & NE 32nd St in Medina.
  • Capacity at the temporary lot is reduced from 50 to 19 stalls.
  • When the new P&R opens in 2013, the 50 stall capacity will be restored.

The Mt Baker Link Station elevator to & from the southbound platform is out of service.  The northbound platform elevator is operating.

  • Until repairs are made, southbound passengers who require the use of the elevator should ride instead north to Beacon Hill and transfer to a southbound train.
  • Southbound passengers who want to exit at Mt Baker should ride to Columbia City & transfer to a northbound train back to Mt Baker.  

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

Travel safely and have a great evening.
