Erica C. Barnett breaks the story — first to a somewhat detailed draft of the plan that will be voted on July 24.
It’s a little smaller and a little faster than Sound Transit 2. In bad news for Seattle, it looks like Northgate slides from 2018 to 2020. The overall cost – $10.4 billion in 2007 dollars – is about the same as ST2.
I won’t steal the rest of her thunder, so go read her reporting. I will concede, however, that if this measure goes to the ballot and passes (big ‘if’s), this plan is good enough to have made the defeat of Proposition 1 and 1-year delay worth it, making me wrong, wrong, wrong.
There should be slides, and so on, at the Finance Committee meeting on July 17.
