SEATTLE — Two public meetings this month will give Seattle-area commuters the opportunity to learn more about Sound Transit’s Federal Way Link extension project. The agency is hosting a meeting Sept. 13 at the Federal Way Community Center and again on Sept. 16 at the Highline College building in Des Moines, Wash.

The meetings will discuss the project timeline, three proposed light rail stations on the extension, and other project details.

Construction on the 7.8-mile Federal Way link extension is scheduled to begin in 2019. The agency is currently entering the next phase of the project, which looks to secure a project contractor, finalize station area designs, and incorporate public feedback on all aspects of the project.

Sound Transit expects its Federal Way light rail extension to begin operation in 2024. The route will extend south from the Angle Lake station in SeaTac toward Highline College in Des Moines. The line will terminate at the Federal Way Transit Center.
