SEATTLE — Sound Transit crews have started construction on the first of three new stations to serve communities along its Northgate Link Extension route. Agency officials recently hosted a ground breaking celebration at the future site of the Northgate light rail station, about five miles north of central Seattle.

The $174-million project involves the construction of an elevated station in Northgate that will feature a platform between northeast 100th and 103rd streets. The station will be located near the Northgate Mall. Light rail trains and buses will serve the multimodal transit hub.

The $1.9-billion Northgate Link project extends light rail service about 4.3 miles from the University of Washington to the King County Northgate Transit Center. It is scheduled to open for service in 2021.
