Progress of the East Link Light Rail continues.

From Sound Transit:

With voter approval of the Sound Transit 3 Plan in November, funding is in place to continue light rail 3.7 miles past the Redmond Technology Center Station (part of East Link) to downtown Redmond. The Downtown Redmond Link Extension project, with its two new stations, is slated to open in 2024, just a year after East Link. Stay tuned for more information about this project as preliminary engineering continues.
