2014 Wrap Up

Publish Date

It was a full year for the East Link light rail extension in 2014, and we want to thank you for your participation!

A number of you took the time to attend public meetings throughout the year. Those meetings highlighting the progress we're making on final design were hosted in Seattle, Mercer Island, south Bellevue, downtown Bellevue, Bel-Red and Overlake. Additionally in 2014, our field work teams continued soil sampling, civil survey, wetland delineation, potholing and tree survey work crucial to advancing the project's design.
