Sound Transit selected WSP USA to perform design-build project management services for the Downtown Redmond Link Extension. WSP’s preconstruction services will include assistance in preparing and reviewing the design-build contract request for proposals.
The Downtown Redmond Link is a 3.4-mile, double-track elevated and at-grade light-rail project with two stations and a parking garage. The extension is also the final segment of Sound Transit’s East Link light-rail corridor.
“The Downtown Redmond Link will provide frequent, reliable connections between downtown Redmond and regional destinations, including downtown Seattle, the University of Washington and SeaTac airport,” said Stephen Kambol, WSP’s project manager. “It will serve as a linchpin of transportation mobility and promote the long-term growth and vitality of Seattle.”
The new line is expected to begin revenue service in 2024.
