Angle StationLocation: City of SeaTac 

Opened: 2016

Background: Angle Lake Station opened on September 24, 2016 and is the current southern terminus of Sound Transit Link Line 1. This elevated station is located in an area currently consisting of mostly single-family homes, airport parking lost and hotels, and large-parcel office areas. In 2015, the City of SeaTac adopted a station area plan to direct potential transit-oriented development around the station.

Pedestrian Challenges: The six-lane Pacific Highway South (WA-99) creates a barrier that divides the station area into two. In addition, the very large block sizes and the current auto-oriented environment discourage walking to and from the station. We believe that the station needs safe and frequent pedestrian crossings along Pacific Highway to knit together the station area. Furthermore, it is important that pedestrian infrastructure be provided to connect the station to important destinations such as Madrona Elementary school and Angle Lake Waterfront park. 

Feet First Actions:

In 2014, Feet First hosted a Walk & Talk event at the station that brought together city officials, residents, and other interested stakeholders to discuss site-specific walkability issues. We also conducted a walking audit near Madrona Elementary, a school located less than a ½ mile from the station. We used the information obtained from this audit to provide feedback on the development of the City of SeaTac Angle Lake District Station Area Plan. This audit supplements a pedestrian and bike connectivity study done at this station in the same year.
