<p>Service on the TDLE project is expected to begin in 2030.</p><p>Sound Transit</p>

HDR will support the Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority (Sound Transit) in planning the final extension needed to complete light rail service between Seattle and Tacoma, Wash. The Tacoma Dome Link Extension (TDLE) project will advance a reliable transit alternative to severely congested roadways in the South Sound corridor.

Sound Transit’s board of directors authorized a contract with HDR’s team to provide planning, preliminary engineering, environmental, and public involvement services. HDR will support the 9.7-mile light rail transit extension with four new transit stations and a new operations and maintenance facility.

The TDLE project will continue south from Sound Transit’s previous light rail project, the Federal Way Link Extension (FWLE). Service on the TDLE project is expected to begin in 2030. The alignment will continue through South Federal Way, Fife, East Tacoma, and it will terminate near the Tacoma Dome transit hub, with connections to the Tacoma Link urban rail transit system, Amtrak, and Sounder commuter rail service.

“With four new LRT stations, Sound Transit and the cities in the corridor will have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform station areas into vibrant new station-communities,” HDR Project Manager Sharon Kelly said. “While Sound Transit has defined a representative alignment and general station locations, we will help them refine both in ways that benefit these cities for generations.”

Public involvement will dominate planning activities for the next three years. HDR’s team will lead stakeholder engagement, inviting the public, and property and business owners, to weigh in along with four municipalities, three transportation agencies, two counties and one tribal government. The TDLE alignment also will pass through natural resource lands, crossing streams and the Puyallup River, bringing the first urban rail transit stop to Puyallup Tribe of Indians' lands.

Among the project’s first challenges will be finding a site for a new Link operations and maintenance facility, which is needed for this project and the larger Link system to store and maintain light rail vehicles. HDR’s recent acquisition, HDR | Maintenance Design Group, brings unique qualifications to plan and design a custom, purpose-built facility that’s embraced by the community around it.

Hello, my name is TDLE

 

We're new in the neighborhood. This is the inaugural email for the Tacoma Dome Link Extension (TDLE), which will add 9.7 miles of regional light rail service to our existing network, connecting Pierce County and South King County with points north and east. Stations have been envisioned through the Sound Transit 3 plan approved by voters in the Tacoma Dome, East Tacoma, Fife, and South Federal Way areas. We hope you'll continue to stay engaged with us as we launch this project.

 

Hello TDLE

 

 

Apply to be a community representative by March 6!

 

Be the voice of the community. We're recruiting individuals to be part of a Stakeholder Group and to serve as representative of their communities. This group will work together to help refine project alternatives such as route, station locations, and more for further study in our environmental review process.

 

The deadline for submitting your application is 5 p.m. on March 6. So, don't wait. Visit soundtransit.org/tdlink to learn more and complete the short application. Representatives will be selected soon thereafter, and the first meeting will take place on March 28.
