Sound Transit’s Open House on Kent Station improvements is Oct. 18

Sound Transit will hold an Open House on Thursday, October 18, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Green River College, and the public is invited to view early concepts for improvements at Kent Station.

Residents can learn about the proposed parking garage layout as well as potential walking, bicycling, and transit improvements.

People unable to attend the event can participate in an online open house at soundtransit.org/kent-access-improvements.

The online open house will be available through Oct. 26.

In the 2008 Sound Transit 2 ballot measure, voters approved funding for improving commuter access to Sounder train stations. Kent station improvements include a new parking garage and enhanced connections for pedestrians, cyclists and transit users.

Sound Transit is currently in environmental review and preliminary design for the project. The new parking garage is scheduled to open in 2023.
