Breaking News: Sound Transit Released Motion for Eastlink Preferred Alternative

Sound Transit just released an amended preferred alternative alignment for the Eastlink extension to Bellevue and beyond.

The motion is on the agenda for tomorrow's Sound Transit Board meeting. Here it is:

The most controversial issue of the Eastlink project is the C segment (tunnel or no tunnel) through downtown Bellevue. This proposed motion allows design and engineering to go forward on both a surface and deep bore tunnel option and provides a timetable for the City of Bellevue to propose funding options to Sound Transit. Segment D will go through the Bel-Red coordinator, which is undergoing massive transit oriented development in East Bellevue.

Stay tuned!

The meeting where the motion could move is tomorrow at 1:30 at the Sound Transit Board room.
