Program Overview

Projects
University Link: The University Link work program with $1.76 billion capital budget was approved by the Board in
July 2008. The 3.15-mile light rail segment is located entirely underground with tunnels traveling from Pine Street,
under the I-5 freeway to an underground station at Capitol Hill, continuing north beneath SR 520 and the Lake Wash-
ington Ship Canal to an underground station on the University of Washington campus, near Husky Stadium.

North Link: The University of Washington Station (UWS) to Northgate project is a 4.3-mile extension of light rail
from the UWS north under campus via twin-bored tunnels to an underground station at NE 45th Street continuing to
an underground station at NE 65th Street and via tunnel, retained cut and elevated sections to Northgate. Preliminary
engineering and the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) process has been completed for North
Link. The project is in Final Design.

Initial Segment: Completed 13.9-mile light rail line between downtown Seattle and South 154th Street in the City of
Tukwila. Revenue service began on July 18, 2009. The Initial Segment represents the Minimum Operable Segment
(MOS) for the executed Full Funding Grant Agreement (FFGA).

Airport Link: Completed 1.7-mile extension of the Initial Segment to Sea-Tac International Airport. Revenue service
began on December 19, 2009.

East Link: East Link expands light rail to East King County via I-90 from Downtown Seattle to the Overlake Transit
Center area of Redmond, with stations serving Rainier Avenue/I-90, Mercer Island, South Bellevue, Downtown Belle-
vue, Overlake Hospital, the Bel-Red corridor, Overlake Village and the Overlake Transit Center. Revenue Service to
the Overlake Transit Center forecast for early 2023 with a tunnel route in Downtown Bellevue.

South Link: South Link consists of a 1.6-mile extension of the light rail from the SeaTac/Airport Station to an elevat-
ed station at South 200th Street. Preliminary Engineering and the Environmental Impact Statement have been complet-
ed and a Record of Decision has been issued for this segment. A decision to proceed with a design/build delivery strat-
egy was approved by the Sound Transit Board in July 2011.

Project Summary
Limits:       3.15-mile extension of the Initial Segment
              light rail transit (LRT) system from the Pine
              Street Stub Tunnel (PSST) in downtown Seat-
              tle to University of Washington (UW) cam-
              pus near Husky Stadium.
Tunnels: Two twin bored tunnels. Two contract seg-
         ments: U220 runs along the University Link
         (U-Link) alignment starting at Husky Stadi-
         um, continues beneath SR 520 and the Lake
         Washington Ship Canal and south to Capitol
         Hill underground station. U230 commences
         at Capitol Hill Station proceeding south and
         runs under I-5 freeway to PSST where Initial
         Segment terminates.
Stations: 2 underground center platform stations –
          Capitol Hill (U240) and University of Wash-
          ington (U250). U240 is approximately 65’
          underground with three station entrances.
          Meanwhile, U250, is about 100’ below
          ground, also with three station entrances but
          is connected to the UW campus by a pedestri-
          an bridge.
System:       27 LRV; direct fixation tracks, signals, trac-
              tion electrification, and SCADA communica-
              tions
Budget:       $1.948 billion including finance cost (capital
              subtotal of $1.756 billion)




Key Project Issues
  Non-structural hairline cracks continues to appear on the tunnel liners in U220. Root cause on this issue has not
   been determined. Sound Transit continues to monitor as well as investigate all work sequences from curing and han-
   dling installation of the tunnel liners. Contractor’s segment and insert manufacturer are evaluating the issue. Con-
   tractor will provide Sound Transit a complete report.
  U230 tunneling production has improved but continues to lag the planned production rates. Muck removal is also
   lagging behind the planned rate. Contractor has now started additional shift to increase the production of muck re-
   moval.
  U250 University of Washington Station: UW’s Husky Stadium renovation and the Montlake Triangle Projects add
   logistic complexities in the geographical vicinity of the project.
  Continued design discussion on the Montlake Triangle Project (MTP) and SR520 Preferred Alternative with stake-
   holders. The MTP plan includes a 30' wide pedestrian bridge (Sub-Package—SP1) over Montlake with a bike ramp
   connecting at the center of Rainier Vista Triangle (to be designed and constructed by ST) and a landbridge (SP2) over
   Pacific Place and the Burke Gilman trail (to be designed and constructed by UW). The MOA between the principal
   stakeholders – WSDOT, UW, and Sound Transit – has been signed by all parties. U250 GC/CM contractors sub-
   mitted their 60% comments and their estimate for SP1 continues to be reviewed. Preliminary estimates on SP1 seems
   to be higher than anticipated. UW has commenced Final Design for SP2 and SP3 with 60% anticipated in Septem-
   ber.

 The August 2011 projection of U-Link Estimated Final Cost (EFC) including Finance Cost remains as previous month
 at $1.84B. This period, approximately $33.4M was incurred bringing the incurred to date to $736M (Finance Cost ex-
 cluded). Construction cost accounts for most project expenses. The construction EFC continues to trend at $1.08B with
 only two major construction contracts remain to be procured, Capitol Hill Station (U240) and the Systems (U830) con-
 tracts. The total incurred to date for the Construction phase is approximately $365M with a current commitment of
 over $662M. Cost for LRV continues to be stable as the LRV contract has now moved from manufacturing phase to
 final acceptance phase. In August, Sound Transit took delivery of the final 2 LRVs. The total incurred cost to date for
 Vehicles is at $89M with a commitment of over $98M.

 Construction EFC under the SCC format for this period remains unchanged at roughly $1.03B. Construction phase
 expenditures during August were roughly $24M, primarily in the SCC 10 (Guideway and Track Elements) and SCC 40
 (Sitework) categories. Incurred to date for SCC 20 (Station) at $76.7M clearly reflects increased activities at the U250

UW Station site as Contractor continues with the roof
slab concrete pours and excavation. Incurred to date for
Construction SCC is at $364.6M. When non-
construction cost (SCC 60-90) is accounted for, total cap-
ital cost incurred (excluding Finance Cost) for U-Link is
at $736M.
Overall project cost, including Finance cost as of August
2011 is approximately $776.5M. It is currently projected
that by December 2011, U-Link incurred cost will reach
$863M and by March 2012, will reach $932M or between
45-48% of project budget including Finance cost.
The EFC for project Finance Cost continues to be as
budgeted and projected at $191.7 million. This cost rep-
resents booked financing cost and is generated based on
allocation of appropriate level of financing cost to each
capital project at Sound Transit. Despite an earlier than
anticipated release of $44 million of the FFGA funds due
to the American Recovery Reinvestment Act that was
used to pay down finance charges, it is premature to pro-
ject any savings at this time.

 Cost Contingency Management
 Project contingencies continue to remain at a healthy levels due to the favorable construction bidding climate and very
 favorable ROW acquisition cost trends. August’s overall contingency balance remains practically unchanged at ap-
 proximately $367M from last period. Draws on contingency in August were nominal and was attributed to normal
 construction contract change orders. Contingency level continues to be well above the Planned Contingency Draw-
 down which was projected to be in the $231M and $205M range for 3nd QTR 2011, projected contingency balance af-
 ter planned drawdown range for 3rd QTR 2011 is between $196M and $205M, and the Contingency Buffer was pro-
 jected to be in the $204M and $198M range for this period. The Reserved Contingency at $150M was originally pro-
 jected to drawdown to $80M in the 4th QTR 2011; this is now projected to occur in the 2nd QTR 2012 (see contingen-
 cy curve at the bottom of page).

 Design Allowance: The balance of design allowance of $4.8M remains unchanged from the previous period. The level of
 design allowance currently represents less than 1% of the total remaining work in the project.
 Allocated Contingency: Allocated contingency drawdown for this period was due to contract change orders for U220 and
 U230. Allocated contingency actually increased by approximately $247K due to a credit realized in U220.
 Unallocated Contingency (UAC): The UAC balance is around $50M. UAC continues to remain stable in light of the fund-
 ing levels for Allocated Contingency. Lower than anticipated costs for ROW and major construction contracts are also
 factors contributing to lower than anticipated UAC drawdown.

 Progress and Critical Path Analysis
 The U-Link master schedule update contains the tunnel contractors’ schedules and interfaces with the station and U830
 (track, signal, traction power and communications system) schedules. Tunneling commenced in the 2nd QTR 2011
 with TBM assembly and launch. Tunneling will continue through early 2013. Once the U230 is substantially complete
 in the 2nd QTR 2013, rail distribution will commence and the U830 contractor will mobilize. OCS installation will
 start following rail distribution in early 2015. Substations will then be completed at each station in the 2nd QTR 2015
 and U830 system-wide communication integration testing will commence in the 3rd QTR 2015.




  Critical Path
  The critical path for the University Link schedule continues to derive from the completion of the tunnels, between CHS
  to PSST, to the installation of track, signals and OCS in the tunnels. A later than expected start for mining at the U230
  site has now impacted the project critical path by 16 days. Overall impacts to the U-Link master schedule are shown in
  the August update. The Contractor is developing a mitigation plan for these delays.
  Four days of float have been utilized from the U-Link float contingency of 176 days to maintain the Revenue Service
  Date of September 24, 2016. Float contingency for this period is 172 days.

 Progress and Critical Path Analysis, continued

 Schedule Performance Index
 The Schedule Performance Index (SPI) for the project has risen slightly this period. The rise is due to the positive pro-
 duction rates at U220 and the above projection progress at U250. The slow progress at U230 continues to keep U-Link
 SPI below a 1.0 based on early forecasts. Progress will continue to be monitored closely.




 Cost Progress Analysis
 The current project productivity level improved slightly this period as U220 continues to exceed production forecasts
 and U250 continues to stay ahead of schedule. Mining at U230 continues below expected production rates. U230 is
 expected to submit a mitigation plan for the slowed production rates. Overall U-Link physical % complete is at
 36.94%. Below is a graphical representation of the progress of major construction contracts cost compared to the early/
 late projections.

 Schedule Contingency Management
 The “Minimum Schedule Contingency Curves” were established in the Project Execution Plan (PEP). The PEP segre-
 gated Schedule Contingency into “Forced Lag,” which is a built-in float on the Critical Path; “Buffer Float,” which is
 the duration between Sound Transit’s targeted Revenue Operation Date and the Schedule Revenue Operation Date;
 “Contingency Float,” which is the duration between Sound Transit targeted Revenue Operation Date and the FFGA
 Revenue Operation Date, and “Desired Minimum Float” which is the amount of schedule float the FTA requires
 Sound Transit to maintain. The current schedule contingency balance continues to be 14 months, 6 months above the
 “Desired Minimum Float” required by the PEP.




 Right-of-Way
 The U-Link project involves the acquisition of a range of property interests, including fee takings for stations and stag-
 ing areas, tunnel easements for the running tunnels, acquisitions from the University of Washington and airspace leases
 with the Washington Department of Transportation. These acquisitions required relocations of 141 owners and ten-
 ants. All required relocations have been completed. As of September 13, 2007, 242 parcels were certified for the Capi-
 tol Hill Station staging area and underground tunnel easements. The total number of certified parcels was adjusted in
 May 2009 when two parcels were decertified and one parcel was added for a total of 241 parcels. The right-of-way pro-
 gram status as of this period is summarized below.

U220 Contract - TBM Tunnel (UWS to CHS)

 Current Progress
 Southbound (SB) TBM mining
 productivity levels continue to
 exceed expectations. Northbound
 (NB) TBM has exceeded expecta-
 tions. Mining is expected to con-
 tinue this positive trend.
 Physical % complete is at 67%
 against 47% contract time ex-
 pended.
 Progress will continue to be mon-
 itored closely.


  .




 Schedule/Critical Path
 The U220 SB TBM has completed approximately 2,154 feet of tunnel. The U220 NB TBM has completed 983 feet of
 tunnel this period. The U250 UW Station contractor is now on site. The schedule update for this period is reporting
 zero days of float to Milestone #4, Substantial Completion, as the Contractor prepares for future cross-passage excava-
 tion. Milestone #3, Completion of Tunneling, has improved this period and is reporting 17 days of positive float. It is
 expected the positive trends will continue.
 The Contractor has submitted two severe weather delay notices and the milestones have been adjusted to represent ap-
 proved changes. The critical path continues the completion of the tunnels and cross-passages. Production rates will be
 monitored closely to limit any additional impacts to the critical path.

this period remains below a 1.0, based on
early finish forecasts. Progress again im-
proved this period with positive produc-
tion rates for the SB TBM and the launch

 U230 Contract -TBM Tunnel (CHS to PSST)
 Current Progress
 The NB TBM has mined a total of 562 ft. to date. Slow TBM mining production and the installation of the conveying
 system this period has impacted the schedule this period. The conveyor installation was completed this period and is
 expected to improve production. The Contractor is expected to submit a mitigation schedule for review. Pine Street
 retrieval shaft and adit excavation is complete. Work progress continues with approximately 63% physical completion
 against 52% contract time expended.




 Schedule/Critical Path
 The Northbound TBM mining continued briefly this month as the Contractor installed the muck conveying system.
 Mining commenced at the end of the period at slower then forecast mining rates. Milestone #4, Substantial Comple-
 tion, is reporting 16 days of negative float in the August schedule update. The Contractor is expected to submit a miti-
 gation plan for current delays. The Contractor has submitted two severe weather delay notices that have been approved
 by the CM Team. The critical path continues through the assembly and launch of the TBM Northbound and retrieval
 and return to CHS for the commencement of the southbound tunneling and cross passage work.

 Schedule Performance Index
 The U230 Schedule Performance Index (SPI)
 remains below a 1.0 this period, based on early
 forecasts. A slight improvement to SPI was not-
 ed this period due to the commencement of min-
 ing and the installation of the conveyor system.
 Production is expected to improve now that the
 conveyor system is in place. Production will be
 monitored closely as tunnel mining contin-
 ues.

 Schedule/Critical Path
 The roof structure is complete from gridline 6 to 20. Mezzanine level excavation continues from gridline 9 to 20. Mile-
 stone #7, Substantial Completion, is reporting zero days of float. The Contractor is meeting production forecasts at this
 time.
 The critical path continues through the installation of the station roof slabs, excavation of mezzanine, basement level
 and platform floor slabs under a modified top down construction plan. As the U220 Contractor completes tunnel bor-
 ing from UWS to CHS, the U250 Contractor will commence work on the crossover area. Systems critical rooms will be
 made available to the U830 systems contractor, as the station and crossover near completion. Final Testing and com-
 missioning will then complete the U250 work.

Link Light Rail
North Link
Scope
The North Link project consists of a 4.3-mile extension
of the light rail from the University of Washington Sta-
tion to Northgate. North Link preliminary engineering
and the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact State-
ment (FSEIS) were completed in early 2006. The Sound
Transit Board selected the final North Link route and
stations on April 27, 2006 (as shown on the map to the
right). The FTA issued a Record of Decision for North
Link in June 2006.
The project includes twin-bored tunnels from the under-
ground University of Washington Station north to an
underground station near Brooklyn Avenue NE and NE
45th Street in the University Link District. From the
Brooklyn Station, the twin-bored tunnels continue north
to the underground Roosevelt Station near NE 65th Street
and 12th Avenue NE to the tunnel portal north of the
Lake City Way ramps in the I-5 right-of-way. The route
then transitions to an aerial guideway north of NE 92nd
Street and continues north where it terminates at an ele-
vated station at Northgate.




                                                                 Map of North Link route and stations.

 Project Schedule
 The Final Design effort for the North Link project commenced on October 5, 2010. The focus over the past periods has
 been on the Early Work contract designs in the Roosevelt and Brooklyn station areas. Right-of-Way has been involved
 in planning the property needs and processes for supporting planned early construction in 2012. The current project
 schedule reflects the Revenue Service date of 2021.




 Right of Way
 The Brooklyn and Roosevelt stations require the acquisition of a range of property interests including fee takings for
 stations and staging areas and tunnel easements for the running tunnel. These acquisitions will result in owner and ten-
 ant, residential and commercial relocations. In addition, property acquisition for the Roosevelt Station location in-
 volved the advanced acquisition of three parcels that the ST Board approved in June and October 2006.

Schedule Performance
Based on the current schedule, the planned values for both the early start and the late start dates through this period are
$18.8M and $11.8M, respectively. When compared to the Earned Value of $17.4M, this renders a Schedule Perfor-
mance Index (SPI) of 0.9 and 1.5, respectively. The schedule is tracking below the early plan curve but within an ac-
ceptable range. The project team is closely monitoring the progress.

 Scope
 Limits:         13.9-mile double-track light rail transit (LRT) system between downtown Seattle and South 154th Street in
                 Tukwila
 Stations:       12 stations (including retrofit of four existing Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel stations)
 Budget:         $2.437 billion (capital subtotal of $2.070 billion)
 Schedule: Project completion was July 2009

 Initial Segment Close - out Activities
 The Initial Segment achieved Revenue Service as scheduled on July 18, 2009.
 Final resolution of all outstanding claims and non-conformance issues has been addressed, and final contract comple-
 tion has been reached on the Rainier Valley project. Follow-on work items, particularly in the Beacon Hill/Mt. Baker
 Station area and with certain Systems elements, continued this reporting period.
 Remaining work to achieve Full Certificate of Occupancy at all stations will be completed without affecting service.

 Project Cost Summary
 Project cost information is summarized in the table below. The “Baseline Budget” represents the budget established in
 the FFGA executed in 2003. “Adopted Budget” figures, except DSTT Debt Service, reflect the 2011 capital budget
 adopted by the Sound Transit Board. The “Estimated Final Cost” (EFC) represents the current estimate of the final
 cost for each project element.
 The current EFC is approximately $2.3B, which is approximately $117M less than the baseline budget. The EFC re-
 ported this period is the same as last month. (Table figures in millions.)

East Link




 Scope
 East Link is a voter-approved project to expand light rail to East King County via I-90 from Downtown Seattle to
 Downtown Bellevue and the Overlake area of Redmond, with stations serving Rainier Avenue/I-90, Mercer Island,
 South Bellevue, Downtown Bellevue, Overlake Hospital, the Bel-Red corridor, Overlake Village and the Overlake
 Transit Center. The ST2 Plan provides for environmental review for a future expansion between the Overlake Transit
 Center and Downtown Redmond. On July 28, 2011, the Sound Transit Board selected the project route, profiles, and
 station locations, including the tunnel route in downtown Bellevue, contingent upon the City of Bellevue entering into
 a term sheet and a binding umbrella memorandum of understanding with Sound Transit to provide a financial contri-
 bution to close the affordability gap of constructing the downtown tunnel. Revenue Service to the Overlake Transit
 Center forecast for early 2023.

Key Project Activities/Issues
    Signed and executed the tunnel funding term sheet with City of Bellevue.
    I-90 Track Bridge prototype design team evaluated the two concepts selected for further design.
    Prepared a concept design and cost estimate for City of Bellevue requested design changes on 112th Avenue NE.
    Received further information from the property owner on the cost private delivery of the retained cut across the
     Spring District site.
    Drafted a concurrence letter with City of Redmond regarding the project scope at the conclusion of preliminary
     engineering.
    Consulted with the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP), Federal Transit Administration
     (FTA), and the City of Bellevue to refine the draft Memorandum of Agreement and transmitted proposed revisions
     to DAHP and FTA for review and concurrence.
    Scope of work and schedule drafted for SEPA Addendum and NEPA Reevaluation that will address design refine-
     ments requested by the City of Bellevue along 112th Ave.

Community Outreach

    Responded to emails and inquiries after the announcement of the ST Board on the East Link decision.
    Began coordination efforts with City of Bellevue pertaining to the design options for the 112th Avenue SE portion
     of the Project.
    Coordinated comment letters for inclusion with the Record of Decision.
    Updated the East Link website to reflect the ST Board decision regarding the final project to be built.

 Progress and Earned Value Curves
 As of July* 2011, the Earned Progress of the
 contract was approximately 92%. Compared
 to the actual costs through the same period,
 it resulted in the cumulative Cost Perfor-
 mance Index (CPI) of 1.0. Much of the con-
 tract contingency has been drawn down to
 address scope and schedule changes of the
 preferred alternative and the longer FEIS
 process.

 *Note: The Earned Value lags one month of reporting
 period because the actual invoice from the consultant is
 not received until the third week of the month following
 month end – later than the report cut off date.

 Scope
 The South Link - Airport to S. 200th project is a 1.6-mile
 extension of the light rail from the SeaTac/Airport Sta-
 tion to South 200th Street. After leaving SeaTac /
 Airport Station, the route continues in an aerial configu-
 ration along the west side of International Blvd., turns
 southwest to cross South 188th Street, and continues in
 an aerial configuration along the east side of 28th Ave-
 nue South to an elevated station at South 200th Street
 sized to accommodate 4-car trains. A bus transfer facility,
 kiss and ride parking, and a 700 space structured park
 and ride facility will be located at the South 200th Street
 station. Up to 400 additional spaces may be leased for
 surface parking while the South 200th Street Station is an
 interim southern terminus of the Link system.

 Preliminary engineering (PE) and the environmental im-
 pact statement (EIS) is complete and a Record of Deci-
 sion (ROD) has been issued for this segment. A SEPA
 addendum and NEPA re-evaluation have been issued to
 document recent design refinements. The project will be
 delivered through a design/build approach to accelerate
 project completion by 2016.

  The South Link Project involved the advance acquisition of three parcels that the Board approved in April 2006 and
  June 2007; the final decree was entered in July 2009. These parcels were acquired through the Regional Fund Contin-
  gency. Sound Transit’s protective acquisition of these properties will prevent the imminent development of the parcels
  needed for the proposed South Link line. On July 28, 2011 the Sound Transit Board authorized the acquisition of prop-
  erty rights from an additional fifty-one (51) parcels along the route.

 Project Staffing
 A total of 320.5 consultant and internal staff full time equivalents (FTE) participated in the major Link design and con-
 struction projects in July versus a planned staffing level of 473.3 FTE. Internal staffing levels totaled 101.7 FTE versus
 a planned level of 143.9 FTE; consultant staffing levels totaled 218.8 FTE versus a planned staffing level of 329.4 FTE.
 As reported for the previous reporting period (June 2011), plan assumptions included significant increases in internal
 and consultant staffing levels with the transition of the East Link project from preliminary engineering to final design
 and the transition of the South Link - Airport to S. 200th project from refined preliminary engineering to design/build
 procurement development. The transition has been delayed and staffing for these projects subsequently held at levels
 required to meet revised project milestones. Final design for East Link is anticipated to begin in late 2011 following
 completion of the Record of Decision for the project; the design/build procurement strategy for South Link – Airport to
 S. 200th was approved by the Board of Directors in July 2011 increases in staffing for South Link are anticipated in the
 months ahead.

Internal Resource Commitments to University Link


The equivalent of 42.1 full-time internal staff was committed to the University Link project during this reporting period.
This is 1% (4.8 FTE) below staffing for the previous reporting period and 12.5% (6 FTE) below planned staffing levels.

Cumulatively since August 2006, internal staffing levels are trending 7.8% (2.7 FTE) below the previously established
and revised baselines. This is partially attributable to the lag in filling internal staff level positions; of the approved posi-
tions planned for internal hire through July 2011 within the capital departments, 4.85 FTE that are to be assigned to
University Link remain vacant. Recruitment is on-going to fill these and other positions in the interim, delays in other
major capital programs including East Link have afforded the opportunity for staff assigned to other projects to partici-
pate in the University Link program.

University Link Staffing, continued

Consultant Resource Commitments to University Link, continued

Year-to-date (January to July 2011) consultant utilization on University Link by consultant discipline is illustrated be-
low. As expected, in July, the highest consultant utilization (65.9 FTE) was for Construction Management, significant-
ly greater (27.4% 14.15 FTE) than construction management staffing levels for the previous reporting period. There
were 22.4 consultant FTE providing civil and architecture support to University Link in July a decrease of 3.7 FTE
(14%) over the previous reporting period; 2.9 consultant FTE were providing Systems support.




The following variances were observed between planned and actual civil/architecture and environmental, systems and
construction management consulting staff utilization.

    Civil/architecture consultant utilization during July exceeded plan by 109% (11.7 FTE); additional civil engineer-
     ing support continues to address project changes resulting from the Montlake Triangle Project (MTP). As reported
     in previous periods’ civil consultant utilization will likely trend higher than planned as the MTP design is advanced.

    Systems consultant utilization during July was 67% (5.9 FTE) below the 8.6 Systems consultant FTE planned to
     support University Link; staffing levels are presently adequate to meet systems design requirements.

    Construction management (CM) consultant utilization increased 28.7% (14.8 FTE) from the previous reporting
     period and was 18% (10.2 FTE) above the 55.7 FTE planned.
