Another hurdle cleared

Sound Transit board approval? Check!

From today’s PI: “Light rail chosen to link Seattle, Eastside”

Next step: taxpayer approval

The Eastside rail service, projected to cost up to $3.9 billion for an 11-mile route from downtown Seattle to Redmond, would be part of the second phase of the regional transit agency’s development, stretching over the next 20 years. It is expected to be among the projects that Sound Transit will submit to voters in its service area in a tax package next year.

If all goes well, we should have light rail to the Eastside before I’m eligible to join AARP.
