Sound Transit Purchases Rail Corridors on the Eastside

From Sound Transit:
http://www.soundtransit.org/About-Sound-Transit/News-and-events/News-releases/East-Link-land-purchase.xml

Sound Transit has purchased just over a mile of the former Woodinville Subdivision line on the Eastside to be used for the East Link light rail extension. They also have purchased an easement on the rest of the line for future use.

This is great news. Given the major companies in the Bellevue/Redmond area they have needed high capacity transit for a long time. Furthermore, purchasing the easement may allow Sound Transit to perhaps run commuter rail up to the Eastside in the future.
