Sound Transit unveils regional long-range plans


Sound Transit recently released a regional long-range transit plan, which outlines proposed projects designed to improve and increase transit service during the next several decades.

Sound Transit officials expect to finalize the plan in June, then work with local communities to identify the highest-priority projects, which will be included in a "Sound Transit 2" subset of the long-range plan.

The plan includes adding rail or bus rapid transit service along Interstate 90, operating light-rail service between Everett and Tacoma, Wash., extending the Tacoma Link light-rail line west, and adding light-rail service along I-405 and across Lake Washington on State Route 520.

Beginning next month, Sound Transit will hold public hearings on the long-range plan.
