Sound Transit has indicated that early planning for the TCC Tacoma Link Extension is scheduled to start in 2026. The Tacoma Link will extend from its terminus in the Hilltop neighborhood to Tacoma Community College, adding six stations. With this extension, the Tacoma Link will connect us to Downtown Tacoma and the Tacoma Dome Station, which will be served by regional light rail starting in 2030.
Below is the extent of the information they have at this time. Construction is estimated to start in 2034 with project completion in 2039.
The current indication is that they do not plan on any eminent domain on 19th Street, but that the link extension would be developed within the current right-of-way. We will provide additional information as it becomes available.
