Overlake Transit Center Dedication celebrates completion of a major transit hub
Local, state and federal officials will join Sound Transit Tuesday, May 14 for the dedication of the Overlake Transit Center at NE 40th in Redmond. This important local and regional transit hub will provide 209 parking spaces and a convenient transfer point for riders using buses operated by Sound Transit and King County Metro.
