Sound Transit schedules East Link community meetings

Written by 

On April 22, Seattle's Sound Transit Board announced its preference for an East Link light rail route that runs on 112th Avenue between Downtown and Bellevue Way. While the Bellevue City Council prefers an alternate route (B7, next to I-405), the 112th Avenue alignment could be Sound Transit's final choice.

Sound Transit and City of Bellevue staff are meeting with residents and businesses along the potential 112th Avenue light rail route to make sure they understand the design options and to identify community preferences. All meetings will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Bellevue City Hall, 450 110th Ave NE.

The meeting schedule includes:

June 15: Understanding 112th Avenue Options and Community Interests.

June 29: Evaluating the 112th Avenue Options.

July 7: Identifying Community Preferences on 112th.

Also, there will be an Open House July 14 to discuss 112th Avenue, South Bellevue Park-and-Ride, and Bellevue Way.
