SEATTLE — Northwest Transit Systems Partners, a newly formed joint venture between STV, a transportation design and construction firm, and Mott MacDonald, will help manage Sound Transit’ East Link and Northgate Link extensions, STV recently announced.

Sound Transit recently approved the joint venture, which will be responsible for construction management services for both projects.

The $3.7 billion East Link project is a 14-mile extension connecting Seattle, Mercer Island, Bellevue, and Redmond. The $1.9 billion and 4.3-mile Northgate Link extension will offer light rail service between the University of Washington at Husky Stadium, University District, and the Northgate neighborhood.

The complex projects are still years away from the start of service.

When complete, the East Link project, which is estimated to carry up to 50,000 passengers daily by 2030, will be the world’s only light rail system built on a floating bridge spanning Lake Washington.
