Take a shot to win a trip under downtown Bellevue by Bruce Gray August 3, 2018

Sound Transit contractors recently completed mining the new tunnel under downtown Bellevue for the East Link light rail line opening in 2023.

But you don’t have to wait that long to see it.

As part of our partnership with the Bellevue Downtown Association and their popular “Live at lunch” series of free outdoor concerts, we’re offering an opportunity to win a personal tour of the new tunnel.

Winners will have a chance to see the work happening underground as contractors move on to the next phase of construction to finish the tunnel for train operations.

The contest is part of our ongoing Loyal to the Local program to be good neighbors to businesses impacted by East Link construction.

Here’s how you can win your personal tour.

Visit the Sound Transit booth at an upcoming “Live at Lunch” concert and snap a photo of our Loyal to the Local display and Tweet it with the #LoyalToLocal and #SoundTransit hashtags.

That’s it! Each photo you tweet will count as an entry; enter as many times as you like.

Here’s the schedule and locations for the upcoming free lunch concerts throughout downtown Bellevue

We’ll be on site at Live at Lunch on the following dates:

  • August 9, 16, 22, 23, 30
  • September 4, 6, 12, 13

Seven lucky winners and a friend will be selected at random for a group tour this fall.

The contest ends September 13.

All winners must be at least 18 years old and able to navigate stairs and other obstacles in a construction site.

We'll see you out to lunch, and maybe in the tunnel!

Win a tour of the downtown Bellevue light rail tunnel!
