Online Sound Transit Bus/Rail Interchange open house set for June 8-19

Mercer Island residents should have recently received an announcement in the mail.

Sound Transit has announced an online open house set to start on June 8 and end on the 19th.

Mercer Island residents should have received a postcard about the virtual event in the mail.

The open house is covering the design of the Sound Transit Bus/Rail Interchange. When the interchange opens in 2023, it will foster bus riders transferring to and from light rail.

Mercer Island officials are encouraging residents to engage with a few proposed renovations specifically: a proposed roundabout, plans for the to-be-built 80th Avenue station entry plaza and sidewalk and curb cut adjustments along North Mercer Way.

According to a release from Mercer Island, the city’s engineering and building staff recently reviewed the 60 percent design of the project and responded to certain technical aspects.
