The Rise of Light Rail
A regional light rail system is coming to Lynnwood, to be completed by 2024. The light rail is part of ST2, a transit-oriented development plan designed to connect the Greater Seattle Area through a network of efficient multimodal transportation.
The new light rail development will get more people on rails and on bikes, relieving local congestion and pollution.
ST2 will make Lynnwood a commuter’s dream community. The rails will connect residents to the University of Washington, Downtown Seattle, the Eastside, and the Sea-Tac Airport.
People will be able to access Seattle from Lynnwood in 28 minutes via light rail.
Lynnwood is uniquely positioned as a hub for travel, as it sits at the junction of two major regional throughways: Interstate 5 and the 405 corridor. The city is also equidistant between the map-lynnwood-city-centerand Seattle.
And, to be sure, people will also flock to Lynnwood via light rail — attracted to new development springing up around the light rail station.
