Hoffman Construction awarded contract to build Sound Transit’s Roosevelt Station

Sound Transit, the Greater Seattle area’s regional transportation system, has awarded a contract to Hoffman Construction Company to begin building its Roosevelt Station in early 2017.



The system’s Roosevelt Station will serve Northgate Link Extension trains when the line launches its light-rail service in 2021.

The $152 million contract includes constructing civil, structural and architectural designs for the underground station and includes the installation of elevators and escalators, mechanical and electrical equipment, fire protection and emergency ventilation systems, and surface features and landscaping.

The $1.9 billion Northgate Link project will extend light-rail service 4.3 miles north from the University of Washington, allowing riders to use the Roosevelt Station for a 10-minute ride to the local downtown area and a 44-minute ride to the Sea-Tac Airport.
