Story

King County Executive Dow Constantine commented on tonight’s ratification by the Bellevue City Council of an agreement with Sound Transit for East Link routing, financing and mitigation:

I applaud the Bellevue City Council for their action tonight to move forward as planned with East Link.

Bellevue voters have consistently supported the expansion of light rail as a way to link businesses, residential neighborhoods, and cities throughout our region.

Tonight’s vote reflects the negotiated outcome between Bellevue and Sound Transit that brings us one step closer to construction.

I look forward to continuing our work together for a stronger economy and regional mobility.
