East Link Extension: E360 Bellevue to Redmond
The joint venture project is the final segment in the East Link Extension that will take light rail from downtown Seattle to Redmond. The alignment includes 1.8 miles of double-track light rail transit infrastructure on elevated and at-grade guideway through retained cuts and fills. The work also includes two at-grade stations – Overlake Village near 152nd Avenue NE, and Overlake Transit Center (terminus station) with a pedestrian bridge over SR 520 to residential areas. Station work includes an integrated three-story, 320-stall parking garage and bus transit center, passenger drop off areas, and ancillary office space. The client ultimately extended the scope to include a pedestrian bridge at Microsoft (RTS Pedestrian Bridge). The Kiewit-Hoffman team was selected in part because of their proposed innovation to integrate the bus transit center into the bottom floor of the parking garage, which left a significant parcel of developable land for Sound Transit.
