At the meeting, Sound Transit representatives will speak about the next steps for the I-405 Bus Rapid Transit system, scheduled to open in 2024. King County representatives will speak about efforts to coordinate on an assortment of regional transportation construction projects that will get underway in the next several years.

Washington State Department of Transportation representatives will present an update about progress on the I-405 Renton to Bellevue Widening and Express Toll Lanes project, a multimodal project that includes transit, highway, and bicycle/pedestrian infrastructure. They will also review early performance data for the I-405 northbound peak-use shoulder lane, which opened in April 2017 and has led to improvements in traffic.
