Last week, the Sumner City Council recommended to Sound Transit that the new station access improvements include reworking the 410/Traffic Avenue interchange, building a garage on the existing station site at the corner of Harrison Street and Station Lane, and other area improvements like wayside horns at the crossings to reduce noise pollution. The garage choice matches what residents and commutes requested in the recent survey. The existing site was chosen 2-1 over the next highest site option.
This is just a letter of recommendation. The final choice remains with the Sound Transit Board, which is scheduled to make a decision later this month. On Friday, Mayor Enslow, who also serves on the Sound Transit Board, already met with Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy to review the preferences of Sumner’s Council and residents.
