What are they building in Seattle? It's some kind of a LRT?

We have one existing LRT line from the airport to Downtown. It operates similar to heavy rail in many sections, while it also crosses streets in other areas. Extensions to the north (tunnel) and south (elevated) will open in 2016. The photos are of a further northward extension to open in 2021(?). A new east line will be next, in 2021(?). It'll also go further in all three directions.

Sound Transit approves 2014 budget
11 Feb 2014

USA: Seattle’s Sound Transit has approved a 2014 budget of $1·1bn. This includes $146·9m for construction of the University Link, $141·1m for East Link final design, and $138·6m for Northgate Link Extension tunnelling and station construction.

Another $31·2m will continue project development for light rail extensions south from South 200th Street to Federal Way and north from Northgate to Lynnwood, and $21·8m is allocated to the First Hill Streetcar.

Sound Transit will spend $2·7m on alternative analysis and community engagement for Tacoma Link expansion, and $15·1m to complete high-capacity corridor planning studies and update its Long Range Regional Transit Plan.

Stacy & Witbeck has reached the last segment of First Hill Streetcar track that will be built in the initial segment of this line.

The final two rail welds should occur sometime this week.
