|Redmond Technology Center station in Overlake - East Link Light Rail Extension|
Civil construction is expected to wrap up late next year. Civil construction will be followed by construction of the light rail operating systems (power, signals, etc.). The systems work takes about one year, and will be followed by pre-revenue service testing.
Fares are set at $2.25 + $.05 per mile, rounded to the nearest $0.25. Fares may change over time to achieve a minimum Board-required revenue target, but at current rates that would put the ~15-mile trip from Overlake to Westlake at around $3, or Overlake to Norhgate at ~$3.50.
