Metro’s Friday PM Commute: Expect possible transit service delays for buses traveling northbound on I-5 from SR 520 to the north King County line; text for departures

The elevator at the Westbound stop on SR 520 at the
Evergreen Point Freeway Station is out of service

The westbound stop elevator remains out of service.

Westbound riders who require the use of an elevator can continue to plan ahead to board or exit SR 520 transit service at the Clyde Hill/Yarrow Point Freeway Station instead.

Additionally, the elevator at the eastbound Evergreen Point stop is not affected. On weekdays, westbound transit passengers who need to get to Evergreen Point can transfer at Montlake Freeway Station to eastbound Sound Transit Express routes 541 or 542 to return to Evergreen Point and use the elevator at the eastbound stop.  On weekends, only ST 542 is in service.

Board ST 541 or 542 on southbound Montlake Blvd E just north of E Lake Washington Blvd. This will involve going up a ramp from the freeway station to Montlake Blvd E and crossing the street.

Every effort is being made to restore elevator service as soon as possible.
