Clearing A Path As The Train Comes Above Ground

The light rail's planned route from Roosevelt to Northgate is mostly underground. The train will pop its head out of the tunnel at the Maple Leaf Portal which will be at the intersection of 1st Avenue NE and NE 95th Street about .5 miles south of the Northgate Station.

City Light’s relocation of overhead and underground powerlines near this intersection is complete. Crews have also pulled in new fiber optic cable back to City Light’s North Service Center to improve electrical reliability.
