Today Sound Transit’s board unanimously adopted the ST2 plan that will go to the ballot this November. From the press release:
Sound Transit 2’s light rail expansions build on the light rail in Sound Transit’s first phase, including the line between downtown Seattle and the airport that will open in 2009; the University of Washington extension that Sound Transit is working to start building as soon as 2008; and the Tacoma Link system that is operating today.
The Sound Transit 2 Plan adds service northward from the University of Washington to Northgate, Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood and the 164th Street/Ash Way area of Snohomish County. To the south the system would extend through Des Moines, Federal Way and Fife to the Tacoma Dome, connecting with the existing Tacoma Link light rail system. A long-awaited light rail extension across Lake Washington would serve Mercer Island, Bellevue and Redmond’s Overlake/Microsoft area.

This is great! Congrats to ST! Job well done, however, now comes the hard part of course. Getting the vote is going to be a challenge I fear. I hope they vote yes. We need this badly!
The transit plan looks amazing. I’m hoping that they finish ahead of schedule, however, because I’m already antsy…
Yes I am hoping for the same Sam! Early would be nice.
