Light Rail Operations and Maintenance Satellite Facility | Seattle, Washington
Client: Sound Transit
Huitt-Zollars was retained by Sound Transit to conduct the site selection, environmental analysis, and preliminary engineering for development of a second Link light rail operations and maintenance facility. The project is currently in the preliminary design phase. The new facility is needed to accommodate the approximately 80 light rail vehicles required to operate the three Link extensions north, south, and east, approved and funded through the ST2 Plan. The total fleet requirement for ST2 is approximately 180 vehicles and the existing Forest Street OMF has a maximum capacity of 104 vehicles.
