Engaging the community and next steps

The schedule below shows our community engagement plan from spring 2018 through early 2019. The SR 522/NE 145th BRT project is engaging with many different groups of stakeholders and the public to ensure diverse voices contribute to the success of the project.

Project partners - including the Elected Leadership Group, City Managers Group and Interagency Group - will continue to discuss next steps of the preliminary refined SR 522/NE 145th BRT project to ultimately present to the Sound Transit Board. Sound Transit will continue to use input gathered from public outreach to inform the engineering, design and environmental phases.

Next Steps

In 2019, Sound Transit is sharing the reļ¬ned project with the community, Interagency Group, and Elected Leadership Group for futher input. In March 2019, Sound Transit will request that the Sound Transit Board of Directors advance the project into the next phase of conceptual engineering and environmental review.

As we move into conceptual engineering and environmental review, we will continue to gather community feedback to help inform the project design.
