Sound Transit board backs updated long-range plan


Yesterday, the Sound Transit board approved an amended long-range plan that spells out the regional agency’s next round of service and construction projects.

Plan highlights include 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.

“This long-range plan gives us the ‘big picture’ of what regional transit should look like by the year 2030,” said Sound Transit Board Chair John Ladenburg, adding that the plan will help the board “shape Sound Transit 2, the ballot item that will go to the voters” in 2006.
