Has anybody noticed that when Sound Transit officials talk about the light rail extension into Federal Way, they say, “The extension from Highline Community College (HCC) to 272nd Street”?
But 272nd Street is North Federal Way, while 320th is Federal Way proper – another 48 blocks. Highline Community College is at 240th Street. The HCC extension is from 240th to 272nd. That’s 32 blocks.
The extension is projected to cost $600 million. That’s $18.75 million per block! Still think it is worth the cost?
