Council Roundup: Plans for light rail open house

On Monday the City Council briefly discussed the report on a light rail route through South Bellevue and plans for a public open house tomorrow.

Arup North America Ltd, a consultant hired by the city, will make its third and final presentation of the B7 Revised Analysis Report from 5:30 to 6 p.m., Wednesday at City Hall, 450 110th Ave. N.E. The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session from 6 to 6:45 p.m., and an open house ending at 7:30 p.m.

To conduct the Q&A effectively, the public is asked to submit questions in advance to Project Manager Maher Welaye at mwelaye@bellevuewa.gov or 425-452-4879. Attendees will also be able to ask questions during the Q&A.

The council hired Arup late last year to perform further analysis of Sound Transit's B7/C9T alternative, from Interstate 90 to downtown, for the East Link light rail project. The new B7-Revised alternative is a variation of B7. The goal was to determine if further development would improve performance and reduce costs and impacts of the East Link route in South Bellevue.

For more detailed information, view the council agenda item at http://www.bellevuewa.gov/pdf/City%20Council/PacketExtendedStudySession6-27-113c.pdf.

A copy of the B7-Revised analysis report is available on the city's B7-Revised web page.
