Owner:

Sound Transit

North Link is a key part of the regional mass transit system. The NORTH LINK Light Rail Transit Project, a 4.3 mile extension of the light rail system, will provide a fast, reliable option for getting through one of the region's most congested traffic areas. It extends from the University of Washington Station near Husky Stadium to just south of the Northgate mall consisting of a double track configuration with approximately 3.2 miles in twin-bored tunnels with two cut and cover stations serving the University District (Brooklyn Station) and the Roosevelt neighborhoods (Roosevelt Station).

The alignment transitions near NE 94th Ave. from tunnels to an elevated guide way with an aerial station near the Northgate Transit Center serving the surrounding Northgate area communities and North Seattle. Most of the North Link route will be underground, with the track transitioning to the surface at a proposed tunnel portal site along I-5 at about NE 94th Street.

The above-ground light rail guide way will travel alongside I-5 before crossing over First Avenue NE, south of NE 100th Street, and connecting to the elevated Northgate Station. When North Link opens in 2021, it will be part of the 36 miles of new light rail lines running north, east and south from Seattle.

Project:

West Point Treatment Plant

Client:

Vanir Construction Management

Owner:

King County

A series of construction projects currently under way at King County's West Point Treatment Plant will increase operating efficiency, improve process safety and expand the production and use of renewable energy.

Administrative Annex Building Project:

Construction is under way on a permanent office annex that will replace temporary construction trailers that have outlived their useful lifespan. The new office annex will provide code-compliant, functional office space for plant staff, replacing older structures that could no longer be occupied.

The Annex design incorporates 'green' building materials and energy efficient design. For example, energy use will be reduced by using high-rated insulation and heating the building with the plant's existing hot water loop.

The landscape plan utilizes vegetation consistent with existing plantings, including drought-resistant species to minimize maintenance and plants that will complement existing evergreen vegetation with seasonal color. Over 60% of the trees, shrubs, and ground covers are native species, and remaining non-native plants are well suited to our climate, requiring little maintenance after establishment.

Construction is under way on a project to upgrade West Point's solids digestion system that processes organic solids and produces valuable resources such as bio solids to nourish soils and digester gas, which is used for power and heat.
