King Street Station Restoration
For over one hundred years King Street Station has served as the major intercity rail terminal in the Pacific Northwest. It is one of three important downtown Seattle multimodal transportation hubs. More than four million passengers a year use King Street Station to board Amtrak trains, Sounder commuter trains and Amtrak Thruway intercity bus services to get into and out of Center City Seattle.
Amtrak, WSDOT, SDOT, and Sound Transit worked in partnership with BNSF Railway to transform the busy and historic King Street Station and adjacent tracks and platforms to meet current needs and future expansion of intercity and commuter rail service.
The City of Seattle purchased King Street Station from BNSF to carry out further restorations. These restorations included replacing the station roof, fixing the clock tower, restoring the grand staircase and terminal floor, and seismic upgrades.
S&A coordinated the project's early public involvement and communications efforts to raise residents’ and businesses’ awareness of City plans, solicit feedback, and engage the general public as this exciting project got underway.
