Sound Transit to host open house on East Link designs


Sound Transit will hold an open house tomorrow to review designs for the East Link light-rail segment in downtown Bellevue, Wash.

The meeting will feature information on the design of the segment between Main Street and 120th Avenue Northeast, including the Bellevue Transit Center and hospital stations, Sound Transit officials said in a press release.

The designs for those portions of the project are about 60 percent completed. Attendees also will be able to see progression in the transit center and hospital station designs, the city's station area planning program, downtown livability initiatives, surrounding street improvement projects and City Hall Plaza redesign.

Meanwhile, Sound Transit officials posted on its website a 12-minute video that provides an animated look at the design of the Bellevue and Redmond portions of the East Link extension. East Link is projected to open in 2023.
