Updated: North side of 200th St SW set to close starting July 27

Closure of north side of 200th Street Southwest and pedestrian detours.

Note that the start date of this work has changed to July 27.

Starting Thursday July 27, the contractor for Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail extension project will begin work on roadway improvements on the north side of 200th Street Southwest between 50th Avenue West and Alderwood Mall Boulevard.

The north side of 200th Street Southwest will be closed during this work, including sidewalks, through Jan. 26, 2024. One-lane, two-way traffic will be maintained. Driveways to businesses will remain open. Pedestrian detours will be marked and provided (see map).


  1. This map is hard to read. The writing is pale and small, and it can’t be enlarged. I can’t tell where this is in relation to the I-5 on-ramp.

    1. Agree that the map is hard to read. Usually those supplied by Sound Transit are very crisp. If it helps orient you, 44th Avenue West, where the onramp is, is to the far right although it isn’t shown here.

    2. The angled street in the lower left corner next to the park shown in green is Cedar Valley Road, which continues north as 50th Avenue W at 200th. You will notice the Transit Center at the bottom of the map between 45th and 46th Avenues. The next road going to the right is 44th. The map shows the north side construction continuing for a half block east of 44th.

      I found it easy to pinch out the map on my iPhone to enlarge it, although the details are very fuzzy, making it hard to read. To enlarge your screen in Windows, hold down the Ctrl key on roll the wheel on your mouse.
