As we predicted, the Sound Transit Capital Committee made a recommendation of B2 modified and C9T for the preferred alternatives earlier today. Bear in mind that this is a mere recommendation and that the ST Board will make its official decision later this year. For those unfamiliar with the East Link alignments, B2 runs up straight up 112th Ave SE as opposed to B3 (the original preferred alternative), which curves away from Surrey Downs and back west on Main Street. C9T is the newest tunnel option that we’ve been covering. We’ll have a more detailed break-down later.
[UPDATE 4:23pm] An alternative recommendation of C11A for the downtown segment was also made.
