Key themes corridor-wide
The following high-level themes emerged from the input gathered from the community at public events in the spring and fall of 2018. These comments were taken into consideration as Sound Transit developed the preliminary reﬁned project.
- Support for effective local transit connections and options for non-motorized modes of travel to allow easy access to BRT stations.
- Support for transit priority improvements to ensure BRT speed and reliability. Suggestions included bus queue bypass lanes and active trafﬁc management during rush hour.
- Concern from property owners along the corridor about the impact of an expanded roadway.
- Support for safe pedestrian walkways and crossings along SR 522, with consideration of where sidewalks would be best utilized.

At these workshops, Sound Transit shared new information on project refinement options that were developed based on technical analysis and community feedback gathered during May 2018 outreach. The workshops provided opportunities for specific, localized feedback to further inform the
How your feedback was incorporated into the recommended refined project
Sound Transit evaluated the remaining refinement options using the identified evaluation criteria and technical analysis. The project team further narrowed potential project refinements with additional consideration of public feedback from the community and stakeholder groups to develop the recommended refined project for the full corridor.
