The Rainier/MLK intersection is in the middle of major destinations including the Mt Baker Link Light Rail Station, King County Metro Transit Center, Franklin High School, housing, and retail. As part of the Accessible Mt Baker project, we’re working on near-term improvements to improve walking and bike access in the area and to better connect the transit center to the light rail station.
