5 The Federal Way Link Extension is part of the voter-approved Sound Transit 2 (ST2) Plan to extend mass transit throughout the region. This project will extend light rail from the Angle Lake station in SeaTac to Kent/Des Moines by It will also develop a shovel-ready plan to reach the Federal Way Transit Center when additional funding is secured.

7 The distance between SR and I- varies throughout the corridor ranging from one-quarter mile in the Kent/Des Moines area to three-quarters of a mile near the Federal Way Transit Center. The potential alignments and station locations overlap jurisdictional boundaries and the topography along the corridor is hilly, which affects guideway and station design, costs, and environmental impacts.

13 The SR Alternative would extend south from the Angle Lake on an elevated guideway, mostly in the median of SR. This alternative includes the Kent/Des Moines SR West, S 272nd Redondo and Federal Way Transit Center.

21 The SR Alternative would have the highest cost, similar travel time and similar ridership compared to other alternatives. It would have the greatest number of business displacements and would create more disruption to local traffic during construction than other alternatives. It would also displace the fewest residences and would be the most supportive of transit-oriented development (TOD).

45 There are several potential terminus options in downtown Federal Way. In general, options using an SR alignment would cost more than options using an I- alignment. However, station options closer to SR would be more supportive of TOD. For either alignment, the costs and impacts would also vary depending on the specific location of the terminus station in Federal Way.
