King County Metro and SDOT are hosting an online open house to get public feedback on improvements on the Route 40 Transit-Plus Multimodal Corridor project. We are hosting a virtual meeting on Tuesday, June 30 from 5 – 6 PM to share what we’ve heard so far to improve the Route 40 and outline our initial concept ideas.

Prior to COVID-19, Route 40 was one of Metro’s highest ridership routes, serving some of the busiest parts of Seattle including South Lake Union, Fremont, Ballard, Aurora, and Northgate neighborhoods. As part of the Route 40 Transit-Plus Multimodal Corridor Project, your feedback will help make corridor improvements to Route 40 to make it faster and more reliable.

Thank you to those who completed our online survey in March of this year! We had over 1,000 responses and have compiled your feedback, along with feedback from Metro drivers, to evaluate how best to improve Route 40. At our online event, we’ll share what we heard and how we are incorporating those comments into the initial design concepts. We are excited to hear more ideas and thoughts from you about this critical transit route.

We are in the early planning phase of the Route 40 Transit Plus Multimodal Corridor project, with construction anticipated for completion in 2024.

Join us on Tuesday, June 30 at 5 PM to learn more about the potential improvements and share your feedback with us!
