County Council accepts rail corridor report
The Metropolitan King County Council accepted a report April 7 from the regional panel that is developing the recommendations that will guide the creation of the Eastside Rail Corridor.
The report outlines what the Eastside Rail Corridor Regional Advisory Council recommends as the future use of the corridor, the 42-mile rail line that extends from Renton to Snohomish, passing through Bellevue, Kirkland, Woodinville, Redmond, and portions of unincorporated King County.
The report cites that the development of the corridor will enhance the mobility of the region, including the creation of a critical north-south transportation corridor that will allow for multimodal connections, including high-capacity transit (e.g., heavy rail, light rail, or other forms of fixed guide way transportation) and non-motorized trail use.
