Sound Transit's Link Light Rail is Now Compliant with Federal Noise Standards

A few months ago there was widespread news coverage about the noise complaints of Link Light Rail around neighborhoods in Tukwilla.  The Seattle PI Reports that the train noise in those areas is now compliant with federal standards.  The resolution of this controversial issues has gotten much less coverage than the origional problem.  That aside, it is good to see that Sound Transit has achieved a resolution on this issue.

In other great Sound Transit News, their board yesterday unanimously voted to approve funds to design a the new station at 200th Street South of SeaTac.  Hopefully by allocating design dollars the construction of this station can be accelerated with the help federal matching grants.
