 A pedestrian bridge will be installed over I-5 by late winter to connectthe Freeway (“Flyer”) Station, in the median of I-5 near 236
th
Street SW, with the adjacent parking garage on the east side of I-5.The Freeway Station is under construction and on target for completionin early 2011. This station is a Sound Transit project to bring express busservice to Mountlake Terrace for the first time. Express service will start assoon as the station is completed. It will provide for people to ride eithernorth or south more frequently and more quickly than now possible. Thenew service will include weekends and evenings.The adjacent parking garage, built by Community Transit, allows peopleto park their vehicles — either motor vehicles or bicycles — and ride thebus. More bus riders means fewer cars and less congestion on the freeway.That also results in less automobile emissions, less oil consumption, andless pollution.For riders, bus service has extra benefits of saving money, avoidingdriving or parking stresses, more transportation choices, and time to relax on the trip.The new station is close to Mountlake Terrace’s Town Center, which will be revitalized over the next few years.Mountlake Terrace has been awarded a grant of $75,000 to plan fora light rail line and station area, transit-oriented development near thestation, and greater transit, bicycle, and pedestrian use.Our community was selected by the Washington State Department of Commerce from 33 competing proposals. Funding comes from the federalEnergy Efficiency through Transportation Planning grant program, part of the federal stimulus effort.The project includes planning for:Light rail line and station areaTransit-oriented development near stationCommunity’s bus service needsCommute trip reductionMulti-modal concurrency standardsElectric vehicle chargingBicycle and walking pathsUpdate of comprehensive planFuture light rail in Mountlake Terrace was approved by Puget Sound voters as part of a transportation package in 2007. The current planninggrant project begins in early 2010 and will be complete by spring, 2012. Actual light rail construction will take place several years after that.
