Client: Sound Transit
Huitt-Zollars prepared the final design Section 700 of Sound Transit's Link Light Rail Project. The line is approximately 8,000 feet in length, and composed of approximately 6,000 feet of surface construction, 2,000 feet of aerial structure main line, and 1,200 feet of the aerial connections to the maintenance facility located on Rainier Brewery property adjacent to Airport Way. Section 700 required extensive coordination with Seattle Public Utilities for utility relocation and Seattle City Light for relocation of a 230kV transmission line. Additional coordination was required with the Seattle Department of Transportation, Washington State Department of Transportation, Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railroad, King County Metro, and numerous private businesses.
