Light Rail Extension Opens on Saturday in Seattle
"This weekend, Sound Transit stations at Capitol Hill and Husky Stadium open to the public. It’s a big deal, because it extends light rail through two of Seattle’s most heavily populated neighborhoods," according to a report by KUOW.
The article includes a transcript of an on-air report by Joshua McNichols, touring new stations, riding the trains, and interviewing Bonnie Todd, Sound Transit executive director of operations, a few days before the extension opens.
The extension made news in January of this year for finishing on time and under budget. The light rail extension has also been the focus of considerable development attention, according to Planetizen coverage from 2014.
