Sound Transit to begin final design on University Link extension



Yesterday, Sound Transit announced it received Federal Transit Administration approval to begin final design on the University Link light-rail extension, moving the transit agency one step closer to securing a $750 million federal grant for the $1.5 billion project.

To be located underground, the 3.1-mile extension would connect downtown Seattle, Capitol Hill and the University of Washington. The line would expand the 13.9-mile Seattle-to-Tukwila, Wash., Central Link corridor and 1.7-mile Airport Link extension, which currently are under construction and scheduled to be complete in 2009.
