Welcome to the East Alaska Junction Neighborhood Coalition.
We are local residents advocating for well-planned transportation in West Seattle. We support and look forward to the arrival of a new Link Light rail extension in our area but have concerns about the proposed plans and their impacts on the East Alaska Junction area. If you are a Junction resident with similar concerns, please consider supporting this vibrant community by joining our group and helping to influence the planning of future Light Rail in West Seattle.
