Sound Transit website 8/17/12:
Community members joined Sound Transit officials and partners today to kick off construction of the biggest Sound Transit 2 construction project to date: the 4.3-mile Northgate Link light rail extension from Husky Stadium to stations serving the U District, Roosevelt and Northgate.

Great News. I could have used this a couple weeks ago. I was going to my nephew's birthday dinner, and they had it a resteraunt in Northgate, and not enough room in my brother's car, so I took the bus and train. Got lucky with a bus coming near our house, transfered to LINK at Columbia City, and the 41 bus at International District Station. Beat them there.
The 41-Northgate/Lake City bus has an advantage right now, during rush hour, provided it's with the flow of traffic, the I-5 Express lanes. The rest have an HOV lane on the left shoulder of the highway, but not all of the direct access ramps are in Seattle.

I forgot that the Northgate extension would be underground as well. It combined with the existing tunnel,will be a long one.
