The Tukwila community has several ways to comment on planning for alternative routes for BNSF access to its intermodal yard in Allentown in a study by the railway and the City of Tukwila.
BNSF’s access is currently from 42nd Avenue South in Allentown, past the Tukwila Community Center.
The city needs public feedback on the screening criteria before it begins evaluating the alternative access routes. The city wants to hear:
• Which draft criteria are most important to you?
• What, if any, criteria do you think we should add?
Those interested in commenting can:
• Stop by the Tukwila Community Center, 12424 42nd Ave. S., 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. March 30 to meet project staff, learn about the project and draft screening criteria, and share thoughts on the criteria.
• Also until March 31, those interested can give input online. Visit TukBNSFAccess.publicmeeting.info to learn more about the project and draft screening criteria and share thoughts on the criteria.
