Sound Transit U-Link Sustainability Report

Our team assisted Sound Transit staff to identify and examine environmental sustainability strategies that could be utilized in the design, construction, and operation of the U-Link line – a 3.1 mile extension to its Link Light Rail system.

 

Since the alignment’s initial planning in 1990, the U-Link project represented an opportunity to re-examine methods of designing and implementing a light rail system that took the best advantage of energy conservation, stormwater management, judicious material selection, urban ecology, and many other aspects of environmental responsibility.
