A Design‑Build Partnership Brings Light Rail to Redmond

E360 East Link Extension

This joint venture partnership between Kiewit and Hoffman is one of only two projects that Sound Transit has initiated in the design-build delivery format. The $227 million project encompasses two miles of light rail track stretching from Park Place in Bellevue, Washington, to Overlake Transit Center in Redmond, Washington. It includes Overlake Village Station with a pedestrian bridge, leased office building, transit facility, and a four-level parking garage. The project finishes in 2020 and will be part of the Puget Sound light rail network expansion when it opens for service in 2023. The team has overcome some formidable early challenges, such as developing RFP drawings into constructible IFC drawings with a heavy civil joint venture partner and getting competitive pricing in an overheated Seattle construction market.
