Google Map of Light Rail, Seattle to Airport


SoundTransit is building a light rail link between downtown and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.  It won't be completed untill 2009 but now we are seeing dramatic evidance of the construction as we drive into Seattle from the South.  I though it might be interesting to document progress on the project.  I am hoping that i can project a map here that will be accurate to within 500 feet annotated with pictures of the construction.  

As of July most of the line between the Tukwila Station and the Boing Access Road has already been constructed.  The gantry is moving north after bridging the Duwamish at 115 Ave to join up with the completed bend arching down to Martin Luther King Blvd.

You may have heard of this plan, because it was in the news recently ...

... Hey, what's a piddling little 7 billion amoung friends.
