SEATTLE — Sound Transit and the Federal Transit Administration have finalized an agreement for $1.2 billion in funding for an 8.5-mile extension of its light rail system.

The FTA announced the grant on Thursday, after the conclusion of a 30-day congressional review period for the funding agreement announced in November. [See “Sound Transit, FTA reach agreement on funding for light rail line,” Trains News Wire, Nov. 20, 2018.] The Seattle Times reports the agreement is the largest transit grant announced during the Trump Administration.

Local funding will cover the majority of the $3.2 billion Lynwood Link line.
