Jayapal releases 2019 infrastructure report

WASHINGTON, DC (July 8, 2019) - Today, Rep. Pramila Jayapal released her third annual infrastructure report on transportation and infrastructure priorities for Washington's 7th Congressional District and the greater Seattle region.

'America's infrastructure is crumbling, but the Trump administration has failed to take action,' said Rep. Jayapal. 'We need bold ideas and solutions. That's why I am proud to release my third annual transportation and infrastructure report, which features critical projects in the district and highlights the ongoing need to maintain, renew, and invest in infrastructure.

'Our challenge is to keep our district the most livable, sustainable, and welcoming community in the country. Our district's infrastructure cannot wait, and I will continue to push for progress in Congress on strengthening the health and infrastructure of our community.'

The 2019 Infrastructure Report outlines project proposals that the 7th District community members and leaders have identified as federal funding priorities. The report was compiled in consultation with various stakeholders - including local municipal, county, and state officials in the greater Seattle area.

Key priorities featured in this year's report include the following:

" Expansive transit improvements that are expected to save riders countless hours of travel time and result in up to 45% job growth in the Sound Transit service area by 2040, such as:

o the RapidRide Roosevelt Project, which will provide a continuous, reliable, high-frequency north-south transit connection from the Roosevelt Link station at NE 65th St. to downtown Seattle;

o the Madison Street Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project, which will deliver fast, reliable, frequent transit service to the Madison corridor;

o the Swift BRT Orange Line Project, which will connect with the Sound Transit Link light rail station in 2024, making it the first BRT-to-light rail connection in Snohomish County;

o the Lynnwood Link Extension Project, which will provide residents of Seattle, Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, and Lynnwood with a safe, efficient, and sustainable option for transportation; and

o the Federal Way Link Extension Project, which adds an additional 7.8 miles to the Link Light Rail system.

" The Sea-Tac Airport Modernization Project, which will invest $3.76 billion in more than 100 critical projects, as well as an additional planned $4.5 billion in future investments to make the most efficient use of space within the airport's existing footprint. These forward-looking projects deliver on optimal airport service, while respecting the needs of local communities and the environment.
