SEATTLE — Transit managers at Sound Transit have selected Max J. Kuney Co. to build the Bel-Red/130th Station and guideway that will serve East Link extension trains when light rail service ramps up in 2023.

The $93-million contract calls for the construction of an at-grade station located between 130th and 132nd Avenues NE and NE Spring Blvd., in the region’s Bel-Red corridor. Eastbound trains departing from the Spring District at 120th station will continue east under 124th Avenue before transitioning to an elevated guideway over a waterway.

The construction is part of the $3.6-billion East Link project that extends light rail service 14 miles to East King County from downtown Seattle. Once the station is complete, passengers will be able to access downtown Seattle from Bel-Red in a little more than 20 minutes.
