WCN Editorial Team 1 Feb 2017 NORTH AMERICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

US-based Max J. Kuney Company has been awarded a $93M contract by Sound Transit to construct a light rail station and guideway that will serve the East Link Extension project in the US.

The scope of the contract includes the construction of an at-grade station located between the 130th and 132nd Avenues NE at NE Spring Blvd. in the Bel-Red corridor.

Trains departing from the Spring District/120th station will continue east under 124th Ave. NE in a retained cut alignment before transitioning to an elevated guideway over the West Tributary of Kelsey Creek. Approaching 130th Ave. NE, light rail descends to the at-grade Bel-Red/130th station.

Riders using the Bel-Red/130th Station will reach the downtown International District Station in about 24 minutes.

The $3.6bn East Link project, expected to be complete in 2023, extends light rail 22.5km to East King County from downtown Seattle.
