Nice map, however aren't there any concerns the blue line being the only line to connect Bellevue and Int. District? Especially with the purple line working as a feederline. There is always the option to increase the frequency, that might however create a conflict with the red line.

The downtown transit tunnel would not be able to handle an additional line on top of the Red and Blue line, which plan to run at a frequency of 4 minutes during peak periods (total 2 minutes in the shared tunnel). Anything more would require a new signaling system (and other improvements) and worse frequency for the additional lines.

The Times headline is slightly misleading.

The project is projected to go $500 million over the 2013 budget due to recent and projected market conditions (as the article explains), but is not yet running over it. An adjusted federal allotment (not approved yet) could cover the overrun if they're generous (doubt it).

The big issue is that the FTA is stalling our federal grant agreement and we have to open the line six months late.

Bellevue Link tunnel

Work continues apace underneath downtown Bellevue. No tunnel boring machine here, but dug the good old-fashioned way (or almost--some modernization used!). From Sound Transit.

Sound Transit orders Brookville LRVs for Tacoma Link Extension
November 17, 2017



SOUND Transit’s board of directors voted on November 16 to approve a $US 26.5m order for five Liberty LRVs from Brookville Equipment Company, which are being acquired as part of the Tacoma Link Extension project

Deliveries will take place between the third quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021. The contract includes an option for five additional vehicles

...

Construction will begin next autumn on a 3.9km extension from Theater District to the Stadium District and Hilltop. The line will run at-grade in-street for most of its length, with services running at 10-minute headways during the peak and every 20 minutes off-peak

Some year-end information on progress in new LINK line construction, including some new pix and a couple of short videos. From the Sound Transit Platform News.
