Light Rail Sound Testing Could Affect Sleep Next Few Nights

The Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) would like to notify the neighborhood of the night alarm sound testing at the UW Light Rail Station happening from 1am to 4am.

LCC writes:
This is really going to bounce sounds off Lake WA and back into our neighborhood, despite the "underground "story noted in the Construction Alert notice information. It will wake up many residents in the middle of night, so please spread the word. Not sure why Sound Transit has to do it then as the stations are completely empty all day?


Here is the News Release:

January 21: Night alarm testing at Capitol Hill and University of Washington stations

Thursday, January 21, Sound Transit’s contractors at the Capitol Hill and University of Washington station sites will test both the alarm and speaker systems. The testing will occur at night, from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m. Nearby neighbors and passersby may hear intermittent loud noise, such as tones and voice messages, from testing inside the station. Because the alarms are connected to the entire underground system, including the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel (DSTT), these tests must take place after the DSTT closes at 1 a.m.
