The following a press release:

Sound Transit will hold two open houses this week about I-405 BRT, scheduled to begin operating in 2024.

· Wednesday, July 18, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Renton Pavilion Event Center, 233 Burnett Ave. S., Renton

· Thursday, July 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Kirkland City Hall, 123 5th Ave., Kirkland

The I-405 Bus Rapid Transit project will provide fast, frequent and reliable transit service connecting communities along I-5, I-405 and State route 518 from Lynnwood to Burien with a new transit center in South Renton and 11 BRT stations, three of which will include added parking. By providing a better option to sitting in traffic, BRT will help speed up trips.

Community members are invited to learn about the project timeline and how to stay informed; and provide input that will help develop BRT along the I-405 corridor.

Those who aren’t able to attend the open house can provide comments through an online survey here. The survey will be open through August 1.

During 2018, Sound Transit will consider and evaluate refinements to the representative project approved by voters in 2016 and recommend a proposed project to the Sound Transit Board. The board will then advance the refined project into the conceptual engineering and environmental review phase in 2019. Service is anticipated to start in 2024.
