  • In 2016, Sound Transit’s University Link light rail extension will connect the University District with Capitol Hill, Downtown Seattle, Rainier Valley and Sea-Tac International Airport. Both Metro Transit and Sound Transit are looking for ways to make the new light rail service sync most efficiently with the existing bus system.

  • SDOT stands by its Roy Street changes

    Parking in Queen Anne isn’t as easy as it used to be.

  • Trees to be removed in major pipe replacement
