Rte 424: Montlake Fwy Stop to Close March 2019

Nov 2, 2018, 03:00 PM

Due to continued work on the 520 bridge project, the Washington State Department of Transportation will be permanently closing the Montlake Freeway Station near UW in March 2019.

Route 424 riders whose destination is the UW will need to transfer to ST Routes 540, 541 or 542 at the Evergreen Point Stop in Medina. This transfer will likely get you closer to your final campus destination. The stop at Montlake Blvd. and Shelby St. will be the closest to the current stop.

Routes 540, 541 and 542 travel west on NE Pacific St. (in front of the Medical Center) and then north on 15th Ave. NE. 

  • Route 540 continues through the campus loop.
  • Route 541 ends at 15th & 45th.
  • Route 542 continues north on Roosevelt Way to Green Lake. 

Schedules for these routes will be updated in March when the Montlake stop closes. Sound Transit will not be adding to the peak schedules of any of the routes, but the current trips are 5-20 minutes apart.

Sound Transit is accepting public comment on its schedule changes related to this construction project (not about the station closure) through Nov. 15.
