Sound Transit East Link – Preliminary Engineering

Seattle to Redmond

HEWITT studied guideway alternatives and station configurations for three station sites in downtown Bellevue. Our role for the preliminary engineering phase was to study type, size, and location of stations within the urban core and the resultant urban design opportunities. Factors included urban/neighborhood impacts, getting the guideway through the grid, pedestrian connectivity, particularly in regard to the existing Bellevue Transit Center, potential for improving urban conditions-pedestrians, bikes, scale, etc.
