The Mount Baker Hub Festival celebrated the transformation of that community with music, food, and fun last weekend at the Sound Transit Link Station and ArtSpace Plaza.
SDOT had a table at the event and we shared information on our Accessible Mount Baker project that will engage and interact with the community to better understand how the existing transportation system functions and how it can be most readily improved.
The project identifies safety improvements for the community near the Link light rail station and the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Rainer Avenue. A second project outcome is the development of a long-range integrated multimodal plan for the Mount Baker Town Center.
While there were several participating agencies, many resources and a lot of important information, there was also plenty of fun at Hub Fest, including local vendors, live music, artists and performers. About 400 people showed up to this fun community event!
Hub Fest was presented by the Mount Baker Hub Business Association, sponsored by SouthEast Effective Development; and Friends of Mount Baker Town Center, sponsored by the Seattle Parks Foundation.
