Youth theater's turf

The new Bellevue Youth Theatre, under construction across from Crossroads Park, was sodded on Saturday.

The $8.8-million theater construction project started last May and is funded by a $2 million match from the city through a voter-approved parks levy in 2008 and an additional $2.5 million in from King County Green Building and 4Culture grants.

With up to 20 workers tackling the project five days a week, the theater is expected to be completed by late 2014.

Once completed, people will be able to walk around on top of the roof, which will tie into a walking path for the park area.
