Mudslide cancels Sounder service between Seattle and Everett

Sounder service between Seattle and Everett has been canceled until at least Monday morning after a mudslide blocked two tracks around 10:30 this morning, according to BNSF Railway.

The mudslide occurred between Mukilteo and Edmonds, the railroad reports. Under BNSF 48-hour safety rules, Sounder service will resume Monday morning if there are no further slides and the slopes adjacent to the tracks remain stable.

Extra bus alternatives are being arranged and riders can travel between Seattle and Everett.

There have been about 200 mudslides in the rail corridor between Seattle and Everett this past winter, and 82 of them have been classified as significant. In 50 cases the slides have blocked at least one track and triggered the two-day ban on passenger service.
