Safety drill to close MLK Jr. Way today

This morning, from 9:00 am to noon, don’t be surprised to see a lot of police and emergency response crews at the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Way and South Cloverdale Street. It’s a safety drill to help prepare for the opening of the Link light rail service this July. (We hear July 3 is the day. We can’t wait!)

During the test Martin Luther King, Jr. Way will be closed to through traffic from South Kenyon Street to South Henderson Street, though Metro Transit will be allowed through. Other traffic will be detoured to Renton Avenue South and Beacon Avenue South.

Need more information? Contact Bruce Gray, Sound Transit public information officer, at 206-398-5069.
