Sound Transit selects joint venture to build Redmond Link extension
Sound Transit's board last week chose the Stacy and Witbeck/Kuney joint venture to complete final design and construction of the Downtown Redmond Link Extension project, which will extend light-rail 3.4 miles from the Redmond Technology Station to downtown Redmond, Washington.
The $729.3 million contract includes construction of guideway, two stations, a parking garage, the overhead catenary system, traction power substations, train control and communications, special track work, utilities, and street and trail improvements, Sound Transit officials said in a press release.
The board also authorized the joint venture to review alternative concepts received during the procurement process, and approved a $50 million allowance should it want to incorporate any of those elements into the contract.
Passenger-rail service on the extension is expected to begin in 2024.
