East Link Construction Update
City of Bellevue Traffic Advisories
East Link Light Rail construction has begun. East Link will give riders a fast, frequent and reliable connection between the Eastside's biggest population and employment centers and destinations across King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. When East Link opens, passengers will be able to ride over 50 miles of light rail with easy access to Redmond, Downtown Seattle, Sea-Tac Airport and other new extensions which will open north to Lynnwood and south to Kent/Des Moines. Construction of the East Link portion of the larger regional system began in 2017 and is currently scheduled to be completed by 2023. The Downtown Station (Bellevue's only downtown station) will be located directly across from Meydenbauer Center. Construction impacts in and around the Center are inevitable, however, we are working closely with Sound Transit and the City of Bellevue to ensure that traffic impacts are managed and access to Meydenbauer Center is maintained for our guests.
We are committed to keeping Bellevue visitors informed on traffic impacts and will maintain current travel information and provide alerts as needed.
