SEATTLE – The complaints from passengers at the Westlake light rail station of Sound Transit continue to pour in.
After workers in the street above accidentally poked through the ceiling last Thursday, the link trains are still only running on one track.
All passengers must now transfer at Pioneer Square. Trains are now every 15 minutes, instead of every 10.
“I can’t imagine what it will be like this weekend, with the games. That’s going be wild,” said passenger Fernanda López on Friday.
This weekend, Seattle will host the Kraken, Mariners and OL Reign, as well as the Sounders.
Sound Transit urges its riders to leave extra-time for their journey.
“It’s going to be a long weekend.” We apologize for the inconvenience. “The outage was not planned, but we had to do so for safety reasons,” said John Gallagher, spokesperson for the agency.
Sound Transit hopes to resume full service within a week.
Traffic on the ramp will not return until late next Monday due to another hole in the ramp between West Seattle Bridge and northbound State Route 99.
The Montlake Bridge will close on Saturday to mark the start of the boating season. There will also be construction lane closings on Interstate 90 near Issaquah, and on northbound I-5 in downtown Seattle.
This weekend, the South Lake Union Streetcar is also scheduled to be closed due to maintenance.
