The Office of Planning and Community Development (OPCD) and Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) are inviting the community to a combined, focused conversation on the Judkins Park Station area and coordinating City activities to make your neighborhood a better place for you. This project – the Judkins Park Station Area Study – places the new station at the center of the map for this planning effort, marrying neighborhoods that have been separated by I-90, topography, discontinuous streets, and uninviting paths to address land use and transportation together.

Why Judkins Park?
With the Sound Transit Judkins Park light rail station set to open in 2023, a great transportation asset is coming to the neighborhood! Low-rise residential buildings are popping up, potential zoning updates through the Housing, Affordability, and Livability Agenda (HALA) are being discussed, and capital projects are being planned and constructed in the area.
Existing mobility challenges include:
Purpose of Study
This study will look at access to the light rail station as well as mobility within the Judkins Park neighborhood for residents, businesses and their customers. It will also look at access for those who are moving through (transferring from one mode to another) or going to and from key institutions in the area such as the Lighthouse for the Blind and the Northwest African American Museum.
Specifically, we will find out the community's transportation needs, develop concepts for transportation improvements, and generate initial cost estimates to ensure better access to the future station while addressing near-term improvement needs.

The project team attended the Rainier Valley Community Forum on March 7, which drew about 70 attendees including constituents brought in by the DON Community Liaisons. Attendees helped the project team identify community assets and transportation improvement ideas in the Judkins Park Station access area.
