Mountlake Terrace Transit Center surface parking lot to close Oct. 19

The Mountlake Terrace Transit Center surface parking lot, which will serve as a staging area for Sound Transit light rail station construction, is scheduled to close at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19.

The parking garage at Mountlake Terrace Transit Center will remain open.

Parking will be replaced by an interim park and ride lot, located on the corner of 56th Avenue West and 232nd Street Southwest (the former site of Roger’s Market Place).

In addition to the existing high-frequency transit connections between the interim lot and Mountlake Terrace Transit Center, a Sound Transit-provided shuttle service will ensure the wait is never more than 10 minutes during peak hours,” Sound Transit said in an announcement. “In fact, in most instances the wait will be far shorter.

The parking garage at Mountlake Terrace Transit Center will remain open.

Riders of Community Transit routes 810 and 871 to the University District

Routes 810 and 871 stop at the interim park and ride prior to connecting at the transit center. Riders of these routes should look for parking at the interim park and ride first to prevent overcrowding in the garage.

Riders of all routes to downtown Seattle

All riders boarding buses headed for downtown Seattle should look for parking in the current Mountlake Terrace Transit Center parking garage to avoid having to transfer.

As this closure approaches, transit riders and park and ride users should expect to see communications including signage, rider alerts, web and email announcements.

You can sign up for construction alerts to get the latest information.

    1. Surface parking lot has closed; temporary lot at former Roger’s Market is open and there’s shuttle service from there to the Transit Center. But Transit Center garage will continue to be open during light rail construction. Hope that helps!
