Highlight: Hilltop Tacoma Link Extension
Opening late summer / early fall 2022
This project more than doubles the length of Tacoma Link, starting with a relocated Theater District station, and adding six new stations. These connect to popular destinations such as the Stadium District, Wright Park and major medical facilities before reaching the new Hilltop neighborhood terminus. Tracks run in existing road lanes and are compatible with on-street parking and existing bicycle facilities. Platforms are located in the center roadway. The project also includes expansion of the Operations and Maintenance Facility located on East 25th Street to accommodate five new light rail vehicles.
