WSDOT and Sound Transit built a new bus station in the median of I-5 at 236th Street SW in Mountlake Terrace. The station has bus-only ramp connections to the I-5 HOV lanes. An overhead, covered pedestrian bridge connects the station to the Mountlake Terrace Park and Ride. This project now allows Sound Transit buses to regularly serve the Mountlake Terrace Park and Ride.
Providing bus access in the median eliminates the risk of collisions from buses weaving between the HOV lanes and on- and off-ramps.
This project also strengthened the 236th St. SW bridge to better withstand earthquakes.
Having a transit facility in the median reduces congestion by allowing buses easy access to HOV lanes without having to merge across several lanes of traffic.
Improving access to transit also helps move more people in fewer vehicles.
