Pierce County residents who want to take the Sound Transit light-rail line north won’t have to drive all the way to Tukwila much longer.
The regional transit agency announced Wednesday that the new Angle Lake light rail station in SeaTac will open Sept. 24.
Money for the $383 million, 1.5-mile extension was approved by voters in 2008 as part of Sound Transit 2.
The new station at South 200th Street and 28th Avenue South includes a 1,050-stall parking garage, 70-stall surface lot, van pool parking and a passenger drop-off/pickup zone.
Sound Transit officials estimate the ride to Sea-Tac Airport from the new station will be about four minutes, with a ride into downtown Seattle taking about 41 minutes.
About 5,400 riders will use the new station daily by 2018, the agency said.
