Client
Sound Transit Seattle, Washington

Project Description
Sound Transit’s Central Link light rail line corridor traverses a variety of conditions, including elevated trainways, undulating topography, wetlands, adjacency to a freeway, and a river crossing from S. Boeing Access Road to S. 154th Street. The scope of the landscaping project restores areas that are disturbed during the construction process, supplements the exiting vegetation, enhances the approaches to the stations, and provides natural screening for the operational equipment. AVA is coordinating its landscaping design with other members of the design team, as well as numerous project stakeholders. The landscaping of the ends of the line segment is being designed to provide a seamless transition to the exiting landscaping and streetscape of the adjacent communities.
