Kent intersection to close Feb. 5-22 for light rail work

30th Avenue South and Kent Des Moines Road

Crews working on the Federal Way Link Extension for light rail will be closing the intersection at 30th Avenue South and Kent/Des Moines Road starting Friday, Feb. 5 for tree removal.

The closure is expected to last until Feb. 22, according to Sound Transit.

Construction will take place from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The intersection will remain closed overnight and on weekends.

Drivers headed north on 30th Avenue South will be detoured around the closure by heading south on 30th Avenue South, west on South 240th Street, then north on Pacific Highway South to Kent/Des Moines Road.

This work is weather dependent. All project construction work is done under stringent COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.

The Federal Way Link Extension, a 7.8-mile stretch from SeaTac to Federal Way, will open for service in 2024. For more information on the Federal Way Link Extension and to sign up for project updates, visit soundtransit.org/fwlink.
