Construction in South Bellevue and Redmond

East Link construction will kick off in south Bellevue soon and in Redmond as early as spring 2017. During construction, the South Bellevue and Overlake Transit Center park-and-ride sites will be used to stage equipment and materials to build the light rail track, stations and parking garages.

South Bellevue Park-and-Ride to close: construction schedule coming soon

The South Bellevue Park-and-Ride will be closed for approximately five years during construction. ST Express buses 550, 555 and 556, and Metro buses 241 and 249 will continue to serve Bellevue Way Southeast next to the closed park-and-ride during construction. The future South Bellevue Station will include bus and paratransit transfer facilities and a 1,500-stall parking garage.

Overlake Transit Center Park-and-Ride to close May 1

The Overlake Transit Center Park-and-Ride will be closed for up to six years during construction. Transit will continue to serve the Overlake Transit Center while the park-and-ride is closed. The future Redmond Technology Center Station will include bus, paratransit and Microsoft Connector service transfer facilities, a bicycle and pedestrian bridge across SR 520 and a 320-stall parking garage.
