Sound Transit's D to M Street project has been receiving quite a bit of attention in the media. Here is a brief roundup of what's been in the news.
Most recently, Andrew at the Transportation Choices Blog is reporting that the lowest bid received thus far for the D to M Street project is $25 million lower than Sound Transit's engineering estimate of $66.4 million.
And in the past two weeks, there has been news buzzing about Sound Transit taking legal action to acquire property at the Tacoma Rescue Mission for the project. The News Tribune has a story here, the Tacoma Weekly wrote their take on it and then the News Tribune also came out with an editorial about the matter.
Also, with regards to the M Street to Lakewood section of the Sounder to Lakewood project, the Evergreen Freedom Foundation wrote up a story about a rather unpleasant eminent domain battle for the plot of land which now appears to be the parking lot for South Tacoma Station.
