Downtown Redmond Link Extension

Project Highlights

Mode:

  • Link light rail

Overview:

The Downtown Redmond Link Extension adds two new light rail stations beyond the future Redmond Technology Center Station being built as part of the East Link Extension.

This project was funded for construction as part of Sound Transit 3 Plan approved by voters in 2016.

Phase:

  • Environmental Review

Facts:

Voters approved funding for preliminary engineering for the Redmond Link extension in the 2008 Sound Transit 2 ballot measure. The 2007-2009 Great Recession reduced the projected ST2 tax revenues by approximately $4.2 billion. In response, the Sound Transit Board suspended some projects and project phases until funding could be identified. Preliminary engineering for the Redmond light rail extension resumed in 2016 just prior to funding approval for final design and construction as part of the Sound Transit 3 Plan.
