Projects
University Link Extension (U-Link): This project is a 3.15-mile light rail segment which 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 Montlake Cut to an underground station on the University of Washington
campus, near Husky Stadium. Revenue Service is projected in the 1st QTR 2016. The Sound Transit Board adopted the
baseline capital budget of $1.76B in July 2008.
Northgate Link Extension: 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. The project is in Final Design and Construction. Revenue Service date is September 2021. The Sound
Transit Board adopted the baseline capital budget of $2.13B originally in 2012 and revised the baseline budget to
$1.89B in October 2015 (deleted LRV and added the UW TOD Overbuild).
Lynnwood Link Extension : Lynnwood Link Extension extends light rail 8.5 miles to Snohomish County along I-5
from Northgate Mall in Seattle to the Lynnwood Transit Center, with four new light rail stations. The configuration
includes at-grade, elevated, and retained cut/fill alignment. The proposed budget for this project is $1.89B.
East Link Extension: East Link Extension 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 Bellevue, Overlake Hospital, the Bel-Red corridor, Overlake Village and the Redmond Technology Center (formerly Overlake Transit Center). Revenue service to the Redmond Technology Center is forecast for early
2023 with a tunnel route in Downtown Bellevue. The Sound Transit Board adopted the baseline capital budget of
$3.67B in April 2015.
South 200th Link Extension: S. 200th Link Extension consists of a 1.6-mile extension of the light rail from the
SeaTac/Airport Station to an elevated station at South 200th Street. The Project is being developed through a designbuild (DB) delivery strategy and the anticipated service launch is September 2016. The Sound Transit Board adopted
the baseline capital budget of $383M in 2011.
Federal Way Link Extension: Sound Transit has identified the route and station location requirements for the extension of light rail to the Federal Way Transit Center; with preliminary engineering to be completed on the segment
extending from S. 200th St. to Kent/Des Moines in the vicinity of Highline Community College. The proposed budget
for this effort is $41.8M.
Tacoma Link Expansion: In partnership with the City of Tacoma and Pierce Transit, Sound Transit is studying the
potential of expanding Tacoma Link in the context of the City and Pierce Transit service and capital plans.
Link Operations and Maintenance Satellite Facility: Sound Transit is reviewing and evaluating current and future light rail storage and maintenance requirements to support the development, design, and construction of a future
light rail operations and maintenance facility for proposed system expansion.
ST2 Light Rail Vehicles (LRV) Fleet Expansion: This project includes the design, manufacturing, inspection,
testing and delivery of 122 low floor LRVs for service requirements of Northgate, East Link and Lynnwood Link Extensions. The Sound Transit Board adopted the baseline capital budget of $733M in September 2015.

University Link Extension
Scope
Limits:
3.15-mile extension of the Initial Segment
light rail transit (LRT) system from the Pine
Street Stub Tunnel (PSST) in downtown Seattle to University of Washington (UW) campus near Husky Stadium.
Tunnels: Two twin bored tunnels. Two contract segments: U220 starts at Husky Stadium, continues beneath SR 520 and the Montlake Cut
south to the Capitol Hill underground station.
U230 commences at Capitol Hill Station and
proceeds south under the I-5 freeway to the
PSST.
Stations: 2 underground center platform stations –
Capitol Hill (U240) and University of Washington (U250). U240 is approximately 65’
underground with three station entrances.
U250 is about 100’ below ground, with three
station entrances and connections to the UW
campus by a pedestrian bridge.
System:
27 LRV; direct fixation tracks, signals, traction electrification, and SCADA communications
Budget:
$1.948 billion including finance cost (capital
subtotal of $1.756 billion)
Schedule: Project completion in the 1st QTR 2016
Key Project Issues
 U830 Systems - SCADA software development continues to be the highest risk critical path in Systems—now in the
commissioning and integration testing phases. Repaired 26kV splices continue to be problematic. As of this writing,
ST has now completed repairing one tunnel bore and target to complete all splices by Revenue Service. Only one redundant cable is required for operational redundancy.
 U240 Capitol Hill Station /U250 UW Station - Level 3 inter–station testing on the Emergency Ventilation System seems
to be challenging. Modification to the fan modes and installation of additional stair and elevator dampers, power
door operators is progressing. As of this writing, these mitigation work has been witness and bought off by the Seattle
Fire Department. Substantial Completion was achieved on December 31, 2015. This is no longer an issue.
 LRV Fleet Wide Repairs - Fleet wide defect was discovered in the LRVs’ traction motor/gearbox unit. Priority are given to repair the older LRV. Without sufficient reliable LRVs by Revenue Service or Pre-Revenue Service, U-Link will
be challenged to operate with six- minute headways. Cost is tracked and isolated from the U-Link project. The goal is
to complete all repairs by Opening Day or at minimum, sufficient LRV with required spares to operate six- minute
headways. Forty-two repaired car sets has been put into service and is being monitored for performance. All the
higher mileage LRV which were the most unreliable are now repaired. This risk continues to subside.
 Advance Opening: Revenue Opening has been announced for the weekend of March 19, 2016. Pre-revenue Phase
started on January 14, 2016. Testing and Start-Up Period is compressed - any impact or delay will be day to day. Coordination with regional stakeholders continues. Link Operation has initiated 6 minutes peak headways in the
DSTT. Newly imposed new federal requirement for additional safety oversight responsibilities -“System Safety Readiness Review” for U-Link alignment took placed in November 2015.

In January, the projected Estimated Final Cost (EFC) including Finance Cost continues to be about $1.8B. This period,
approximately $2.8M was incurred, increasing the project Incurred to Date amount to about $1.5B (Finance Cost excluded). Direct construction cost accounted for about 40% of the cost incurred in January at $1M with the majority of
the cost largely in work. The direct construction EFC trends approximately $1B. This trend continues to be intact as
both the high risk tunnel scope and all excavation are now completed. The Capitol Hill Station (U240) Contractor
achieved Substantial Completion on December 31, 2015 and continues on supporting commissioning testing and completing their punch list work, the Systems (U830) Contractor continues the end device installations, system integration
and testing. Maintenance of Way continues on building finishes. The Total Incurred to Date for the Construction Phase
is about $963M with a current commitments about $984M. Cost for LRV is at about $99.2M and repairs to the traction
motor and gear unit continues. Cost of repairs are excluded from this project and tracked independently.
Construction EFC under the SCC format for this period remains stable and relatively unchanged at about $1B. Construction SCC expenditures in January is at $0.44M. This period, the bulk of U-Link construction cost has been attributed Station punch list and Systems testing and change order work.

Incurred to date for Construction under the SCC is almost $955M. Total capital cost incurred to date including non-construction cost (SCC 60 thru 90) now exceeds $1.46B or about 84% of total project budget
scoped (excluding Finance Cost).
Total cost incurred at the end of January 2016 including
Finance Cost is nearing $1.63B. The project financing
cost incurred to date about $163M. In the 4th QTR
2015, $10.38M of interest cost was recorded. The next
finance cost update will be for the end of 1st QTR 2016.
Overall, University Link cost to date is projection of
approximately $1.65B by May 2016.
At time of publication, EFC has been revised to show a
trend of approximately over $200M under budget, unfortunately, the system numbers does not reflect this
new trend as these numbers were frozen before the revised forecast was completed.
The EFC for project Finance Cost continues to be projected at $191.7M. This cost represents 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 $44M of the FFGA funds due to the American
Recovery Reinvestment Act that was used to pay down
finance charges, it is premature to project any savings at
this time.

Cost Contingency Management
Project contingencies continue to remain at a healthy level of a little over $269M due to the favorable construction bidding climate, ROW acquisition cost trends, diligent project risk management practices and excellent tunneling conditions. December’s overall contingency notched down by about $3M due to change orders and some administrative adjustments due to the budget transition from the previous fiscal year to the current. Contingency level continues to trend
well above the Planned Contingency Drawdown; the projected planned balance between the end of 4th QTR 2015 and
the end of 1st QTR 2016 ranges from $74M and $70M. Both the Contingency Buffer the planned Reserved Contingency
balance is now officially removed (see contingency curve at the bottom of page). Construction has now surpassed 99%
complete. Barring any catastrophic event, there is a high likelihood that this contingency trend will remain intact. A
revised forecast at the time of this publication indicated that approximately 74% of these contingencies will be remain
uncommitted.
Design Allowance: The balance of design allowance has been reduced to less than $1M and is consistent with the project
cycle as all the major design has been completed. The level of design allowance currently represents less than one-half
percent of the total remaining scope in the project that has not been procured.
Allocated Contingency: Allocated Contingency continues to remain stable approximately at $222M.
Unallocated Contingency (UAC): The total UAC balance is at $47M and continues to remain stable compared to the
Baseline Cost Estimate amount of $53.7M considering that the construction is now surpassed 99% complete.

Risk Management
The University Link Risk Management Plan (RMP) established a risk management and oversight process for identifying, assessing, and monitoring risks and develop risk reduction/mitigation plans. On a quarterly basis, the risk register
is reviewed and risks are updated to reflect condition at the end of the current quarter. The RMP is also executed in
compliance to the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) guidance laid out as part of FTA’s Program Guidelines subtask 40E.
Project Risk Overview:
At the end of the 4th QTR 2015, U-Link project represents about 99% construction completion with U220 and U230
Tunnels at Acceptance; U240 Station is about 98% complete. U250 achieved substantial completion, and is now working on punch list and level 3 and 4 commissioning. U830 Systems approaches 97% complete with continued work on
the SCADA development and installation as well as ongoing verification for current communication and signaling elements before the full system integration. Rail Activation phase is now in full swing. Sound Transit continues to identifying and update risks on the register that were both within the current management time horizon and posed considerable risk to project objectives by having both relatively high probability and impact. Currently, the register contained a
total of 659 risks, of which 122 were active (537 closed). Closed risks were those that no longer presents a potential
impact, e.g., risks associated with surface and tunnel excavation at the stations and design risks that have been resolved
since the last update. The risks items remaining in the register continues to be high due to activities relating to Rail Activation phase and specifically the interfaces due to the commission of the extension system. University Link team will
continue to manage the Rail Activation phase with careful deliberation to avoid any “down stream effect” as these are
follow-on work and some of the risk may have already been captured upstream in the current active construction and
rail activation phase.
The top remaining risk subjects that will require at least partial mitigating action in the upcoming quarter are provided
below along with their planned risk management strategies:

Systems Software Development
Development of the software systems to operate U-Link and the integration of the current operating system

Systems Final Design, Installation, and Testing (U830, U835, System-wide Testing)
All phases U-Link systems integration between the cut over of the current operating systems through to
the commissioning and occupancy of the U-Link program

Rail Activation
As the project moves closer towards the transition from construction to rail activation, identification of
new risks and its potential to impact cost and schedule needs to be more visible.

LRV Fleet wide Repair
A defect was discovered in the Traction Motor/Gear Unit in the LRVs. Repairs require long lead materials and careful coordination to minimize any impacts to current operations. If there are insufficient reliable
LRVs by Revenue Start, the six-minute headways promised for U-Link will be at risk. As of writing
(January), all the older vehicles that require immediate attention has been repaired. As it stands today,
Operations are running with recommended spares and the six minutes headways plan are intact. The goal
is now to complete all repair by May 2016. While this risk has been largely mitigated, it will continue to
be monitored closely.

FTA’s System Safety Readiness Review
Late recommendations and findings of the FTA’s Safety and Security Readiness Review team allows insufficient time to respond and/or mitigate findings, delaying Revenue Service date. The draft report was
issued with no findings but has eight recommendations. The recommendations will be implemented hence
this risk will be fully mitigated.

Project Schedule Summary
The University Link Master Schedule is provided below. The U240 Contractor achieved Substantial Completion.
Punchlist and Final Inspections are well underway. It is expected that a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy may be
achieved by end of March 2016. The U830 Contractor is nearing Substantial Completion and System Integration Testing will continue thru 1st QTR 2016. U835 EMI/Vibration design is underway and Factory Testing is complete. Field
Tests are expected in February 2016. The U810 MOW Building is well underway with interior and exterior finishes
nearing completion. Move in is expected in February 2016.
The targeted Revenue Service date is now March 19, 2016.
Progress and Critical Path Analysis
The U-Link Master Schedule update contains the tunnel contractors’ schedules and interfaces with the stations and
U830 (Track, Signal, Traction power and Communications System) schedules. The critical path, this period, is tracking through Emergency Ventilation and the Fire Department Witness Test as the project moves closer to receiving a
Temporary Certification of Occupancy. Elevator Inspections by L & I are also being closely watched due to their required sign off prior to the issuance of a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy by the City of Seattle. Pre-Revenue Service has commenced and is expected to be completed in March. Revenue Service date is March 19, 2016.

Schedule Contingency Management
The “Minimum Schedule Contingency Curves” were established in the Project Execution Plan (PEP). The PEP segregated 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 was reduced by six months in November 2013.
All contingency float was removed based on the completion of the tunneling contracts in the 3rd QTR 2013.
Schedule Contingency Plan 4th QTR 2015
Right-of-Way
The U-Link project involved the acquisition of a range of property interests, including fee takings for stations and staging 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 relocation of 141 owners and tenants.

Project Cost Summary
The Northgate Link project cost is summarized below by two cost categories. In the first table, the cost is summarized in
accordance with Sound Transit’s Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). The second table summarizes the project in accordance with the FTA’s Standard Cost Category (SCC) format. The figures in both tables are shown in millions.
Cost Summary by Phase
The Estimated Final Cost (EFC) for the project as of this reporting period is $1,899.8M, which is equal to the current
project budget. This period, approximately $16.7M was incurred, of which $7.4M was for the N125 tunneling contract, the N111 Utility Relocation project at Northgate and other miscellaneous construction, $0.9M was incurred for
Civil and Systems Final Design and Design Support During Construction, and $1.5M was for Construction Management. The remaining expenditures were for third party coordination, permits, staff, legal, right-of-way and other direct
charges.
Cost Summary by SCC
The Estimated Final Cost (EFC) for some contract packages have been reassessed and revised as a result of updated
design development estimates and the award of Contract N125 at an amount lower than the adopted budget. The current adopted budget values have been updated to reflect the 2016 budget revisions and updated contingency amounts.
Cost Contingency Status
Compared to the baseline amount of $396.2M, the Total Contingency has decreased by $66.8M to $329.4M, which is
26% of project work remaining. During this reporting period, a net decrease of $0.8M in the overall project contingency
occurred. Detailed information is provided below.
Design Allowance (DA)– The baseline Design Allowance of $113.9M has been fully depleted following the receipt of updated construction cost estimates on the N140, N150, and N160 Station Finishes contracts. DA has been utilized as
scope development has progressed to 60% on N140, and 90% on N150 and N160. No changes to DA occurred during
this period.
January 2016
Page 24 of 117
Link Light Rail
Northgate Link Extension
Cost Contingency Status, continued
Allocated Contingency (AC) – Compared to the baseline amount of $184M, Allocated Contingency has increased by
$37.2 M to $221.2 M. During this reporting period, a decrease in AC of $5.6 million occurred due to the issuance of
change orders totaling $0.5M on the N125 Tunneling contract, the Civil Final Design contract and the N160 Preconstruction services contract. The remaining $5.1M reduction reflects contingency adjustments made during the 2016
budget cycle which moved some latent contingency amounts to Unallocated Contingency and corrected an administrative error in the financial report from previous months.
Unallocated Contingency (UAC)– Compared to the baseline amount of $98.3M, Unallocated Contingency has increased
by $9.9M to $108.2 M. During this reporting period, UAC increased by $4.8M to reflect contingency adjustments made
during the 2016 budget cycle which moved some latent contingency amounts from Allocated Contingency.
Project Schedule
The N105 Key Bank Site Demolition schedule slipped again this period due to the continued revision of the Division
00 Specifications. The IFB Package is also being held for possible scope changes. Bid Advertisement has remained Feb
-16 absorbing the float in the bid process. NTP remains May 12, 2016. Construction completion is anticipated by midNovember 2016.
The N111 Advanced Utilities Relocation contractor continues to await resolution of SCL/SPU utility conflicts. Substantial Completion slipped from mid-February to mid-March 2016 according to the December 2015 update. ST has
received a revised schedule reforecasting the remaining work and documenting the issues that have been encountered.
Given the magnitude of the issues to be resolved, work is now forecast to complete in March.
The N113 115kV Relocation project has received final comments from WSDOT on the 100% design. The bid date is
still scheduled for February 17, 2016, with Capital Committee approval on April 14, 2016.
The N125 Contractor has determined that TBM No. 2 can be repaired in place, to a degree that will allow the machine
to re-start (expected in mid– February) and continue mining the remaining 650 ft. to UDS, where it will likely undergo a
2-month repair. TBM No. 1 is nearing the University of Washington and is scheduled to cross onto University property
early February. Construction of Cross Passages 32 and 39-43 continues.
The N140 U District Station 90% design review completed in January. The 100% design package is scheduled for end
of July 2016. The GC/CM, Hoffman Construction, has begun preparing bid packages and cost estimates based on the
90% set. The MUP submittal has been pushed back to mid-February 2016. Completion of the appraisals for the permanent Tie-Back easements is slipping into February.
The N150 Roosevelt Station GC/CM is currently working with the pricing set of plans and specs to develop the
MACC. Sound Transit is responding to comments received from the city on the last MUP submission and will respond
in mid-February.
Delivery of the N160 100% design package slipped one week to February 12, 2016. ST is currently in MACC negotiations with the GC/CM. A subcontractor has been selected for the Advanced Work Package at the strip mall property.

The N180 100% Design Package was submitted on December 18, 2015. ST is currently preparing the bid documents
and is targeting March 23, 2016 for advertisement. The contract procurement remains on schedule but could be jeopardized by the ability of ST and the UW to agree on the “Ultra Straight Rail” composition.

Critical Path Analysis
The longest path through the Northgate projects for January has changed due to slippage in the N160 MACC process.
The path continues to be driven by the N125 work with N160 now occupying the path to the Systems work. N160 has
always been near critical. At this point the MACC negotiations have pushed N160 onto the critical path. Northbound
and southbound tunneling remain critical, with post tunneling work including cross passages and completion of the Maple Leaf Portal as the driving elements of the N125 contract.
Critical Path Float
The Northgate Link Extension currently retains 165
days of unallocated project float. The N125 construction schedule currently shows a late completion of Milestone 5 - Turnover of N140 to the Station Contractor.
However, the Contractor has not established entitlement
for those days, and none of the 30 days of Owner Controlled float for this contract has been allocated to the
Contractor.

Northgate Link Extension Final Design SPI
Final Design Schedule Performance
For Final Design activities only, the Schedule Performance Index (SPI) reported this period is 1.03 based
on the early start date, and the late start SPI is
1.04. The design consultant has had some design deliverable milestones for N140, N150, N160 and N180
pushed back, and some change orders executed, which
has impacted the SPI, but the overall deliverable schedule remains on track as adjusted for approved scope
changes.
Final Design Cost Performance
Through this period, the total amount spent for civil
final design is $80.1M, which is approximately 87%
of the total contract amount including change orders.
For final design activities only, the total amount
spent is $75.2M, which is approximately 100.9%
(pending execution of outstanding change orders for
work that has been completed). The consultant reported 99.5% complete for final design activities, resulting in an Earned Value of $74.1M. The current
period Cost Performance Index (CPI) is reported at
0.6 which reflects the planned earnings had the final
contract packages been delivered per the original
schedule, and does not reflect incorporation of unexecuted change order funds. The cumulative CPI remains 1.0, which indicates that overall expenditures
are in line with planned cost.

Contract N111 – Advanced Utility Relocation
Current Progress
Vault & Ductbank Installation- The Contractor continues to clean and adjust installed vaults throughout the site. Resolution of SPU utility conflicts at Pole 2 remains an obstacle to completion of the contract work. No date has been targeted for a solution. Resolution of conflicts at SCL Vault 756 continue to delay the completion of work in that area. A
revised schedule for completion of the work, which takes into account the delays experienced to this point, has been
requested from Walsh with the review of their December schedule update. As of this writing, Walsh submitted the schedule
update for January 2016 and it is currently in review.
Storm Sewer & Water Line –TCE and Encroachment issues have halted work on the retaining walls north of NE 105th St.
Work is expected to resume in early February. Curb and gutter restoration is ongoing.
Schedule Summary
Critical Path
The critical path remains largely unchanged with the utility conflict at Terminal Pole No. 2 continuing to prevent completion of the ED-2 ductbank. The CM team is currently working on the SPU conflict resolution, and believes work
can completed in late February or early March. The schedule now forecasts a mid-March date for completion of the
work.

Schedule Performance Index
The SPI for the project was 0.9 in January 2016 up from
the 0.8 reported in December 2015 based on the submitted but unapproved pay estimate from Walsh. The increase reflects progress on the ductbanks leading to SCL
Vault 756, and curb and sidewalk work in Block 1, as
well as payment for change orders and provisional sums,
which amounted to over 50% of the pay application.

Contract N125 – TBM Tunnels
Current Progress
The schedule update for January 2016 continues to forecast a late completion for Milestone 2 RVS Turnover, Milestone
5 UDS & Tunnels, and Milestone 6 Substantial Completion. Tunnel mining in the southbound bore (TBM No. 2)
drives the critical path. Cross passage work continues to drive the achievement of Milestone 5. JCM has added activities to describe a differing site condition precedent to the start of Cross Passage (CP) 34. The activities do not drive the
start of CP 34, this is driven by the completion of the spiles for CP 24.
Tunneling Operations - TBM No. 1 was 17% complete with the drive between UDS and UWS, approaching the boundary of the University of Washington’s property and expected to cross that boundary Feb.4, 2016. TBM No. 2 is undergoing repairs in place to the drive motors and is expected to re-start in mid-February. JCM has ceased work on TBM No.
3 preparation although the activities for the machine remain in the project schedule.
Maple Leaf Portal (MLP)- Construction of Cross Passages 39 through 43 continues, and planning/installation of ground
freezing systems are in progress at CPs 29 through 33.
U-District Station (UDS) -JCM is currently preparing the north headwall for reception of TBM No. 2. Ground freezing
continues at the south headwall.
Schedule Summary
The longest path through the schedule is still driven by the southbound tunneling, followed by cross passages, and completion of the Maple Leaf Portal. ST is assessing the options regarding TBM No. 2 including the possibility that TBM
No. 1 could be re-used to mine the southbound bore.

Schedule Performance Index
The SPI for this period is 0.9, unchanged from the 0.9
obtained in December. An intervention for TBM No. 1
and breakdown of TBM No. 2 hampered progress this
month. Cross Passage construction continues to make
progress with 5 CPs in active construction and 7 CPs being either frozen or dewatered.

Risk Management
The Lynnwood Link Risk and Contingency Management Plan (RCMP) establishes a risk management and oversight
process for identifying, assessing, and monitoring risks and develops risk reduction/mitigation plans. It provides a tool
for the project team to proactively manage risks on the project. It is Sound Transit’s responsibility for continuously monitoring project status and associated risks, taking mitigation actions for known risks identified on the risk register, and
effectively responding in a timely manner to those risks that pose a significant impact to the project cost or schedule forecast. The next Lynnwood Link Quarterly Risk Review Meeting is scheduled for March 2016.

Lynnwood Link Extension– PE & Final EIS
Phase 3 Preliminary Engineering and Final EIS
Sound Transit executed a contract amendment for Phase 3, Preliminary Engineering and Final EIS for Lynnwood Link,
in December 2013.
Phase 3 Key Activities

Continuing final Preliminary Engineering documentation in preparation for the start of the Final Design Phase.
Phase 3 Schedule Performance
The cumulative Schedule Performance Index (SPI) for
the Phase 3 contract is 0.97 through January 2016, indicating overall the work performed to date is close to
the amount originally planned. Consistent with the
original Phase 3 schedule, planned values for the project ended in December. The Phase 3 work is nearly
finished (97% complete overall), and the overall SPI
will trend toward a value of 1.00 upon completion.
Phase 3 Cost Performance
$37.2 M of the total contract amount, approximately
96%, has been spent through January. Phase 3 contract expenditures through January totaled $20.8 M,
approximately 92% of the Phase 3 contract total. The
Phase 3 contract percent complete reported at the end
of January is 97%, with an earned value of $21.8 M.
The cumulative Cost Performance Index (CPI)
through January is 1.05; indicating costs are lower
than the budget planned for work accomplished. The
monthly CPI is low at 0.56 due to only a small increase in earned value. An independent Estimate at
Completion indicates that the consultant will finish
the current Phase 3 scope of work under budget.

Cost Contingency Management
All unallocated contingencies are budgeted and controlled by Sound Transit. Allocated Contingencies include $7.7M in
WSDOT-controlled construction contingencies that are part of the ST-WSDOT Task Order. WSDOT reports the
monthly status of any change orders that will be drawn upon the WSDOT-controlled contingency, as well as any pending changes.
In the table, the Current Status Remaining allocated contingency amount is based on adding the combined WSDOTcontrolled construction contingency & the total ST-controlled remaining allocated contingencies; the unallocated total is
solely the remaining ST unallocated contingency amount. These amounts are then compared to the current remaining
authorized budget to develop the Percent of Work Remaining figures. (Table on the following page).

Risk and Contingency Management
Contingency Status
Sound Transit has completed a draft Risk and Contingency Management Plan (RCMP) for East Link, and is currently
addressing review comments from the Project Management Oversight Consultant (PMOC). The project’s baseline budget, which was approved by the Sound Transit Board in April 2015, contains a total of $795.9M Total Contingency. This
period, total contingency decreased by the amount of $1.6 M, when compared to the previous period, to a new total
amount of $821.8M . Total Contingency is made up of the following:
Design Allowance is used to account for scope that could not be quantified at the time of the cost estimate. The total
amount of design allowance in the baseline cost estimate is $184.1M. Design allowance remained the same as the previous period, which was $177M. In the next coming period, as the designs are progressed to 100% level and the engineer’s
cost estimates are prepared, design allowance is expected to be reduced.
Allocated Contingency is used to address risks, complexity and unforeseen conditions during the execution of work, including procurement (market risk). The total amount of allocated contingency has a net decrease of $1.6M. This was
due to the execution of change orders on South Bellevue to OTC final design contract to address the design changes in
Bellevue corridor, and amendment of an agreement with WSDOT to extend duration of the design coordination services
in the I-90 corridor. Total allocated contingency balance is now $463.8M.
Unallocated Contingency is used to address general project phase level cost risks and uncertainties. The total amount of
unallocated contingency in the baseline cost estimate is $182.9M. This period, $1.8M of unallocated contingency was
drawn down to help offset the higher than anticipated E130 GC/CM Pre-construction Services contract amount.
Risk Management
The RCMP established a risk management and oversight process for identifying, assessing, and monitoring risks and
develops risk reduction/mitigation plans. It provides a tool for the project team to proactively manage risks on the project. It is Sound Transit’s responsibility for continuously monitoring project status and associated risks, taking mitigation actions for known risks identified on the risk register, and effectively responding in a timely manner to those risks
that pose a significant impact to the project cost or schedule forecast.
This period, Sound Transit began putting together the 4th QTR 2015 Quarterly Risk Report. Additional reviews of risks
are still being done to capture the status and updates to risk mitigation strategies of the top risks.

Project Schedule
The East Link Extension (EL) is in Final Design transitioning to Construction. Sound Transit Board baselined EL on
April 23, 2015. The first early construction contract, early utilities for E340 Bel Red started in May 2015. The first major EL construction contract E330 Downtown Tunnel was issued Limited Notice to Proceed on December 15, 2015
with planned Notice to Proceed (NTP) in early February 2016. Contract procurement continues: E130 GC/CM (I-90
Heavy Civil) and I-90 Segment Construction Management Consultant (CMC) were awarded in December 2015; E360
D/B (SR520 to Overlake Transit Center) currently in procurement and scheduled to be awarded 2nd QTR 2016; and
E750 GC/CM (East Link Systems) was awarded on January 8, 2016.
Revenue Service is forecasted for June 2023.

East Link Extension
Critical Path Analysis
The East Link critical path remains the same as last period, which runs through completion of E130 design and MACC
negotiations, which then drives E130 NTP for construction. Issuance of the I-90 TCAL/ASL is on the near critical path
with less than a month of float before becoming the critical driver for E130 NTP for construction. The EL critical path
schedule is shown below. ASL coordination with WSDOT is recognized as a high priority.
Right of Way
The East Link Extension involves the acquisition of a range of property interests including fee acquisitions for stations,
guideway, staging areas, support facilities, and tunnel and guideway easements as well as permanent and temporary
easements for construction. These acquisitions will result in owner and tenant residential and commercial relocations.
The East Link Extension included the advance acquisition of approximately one mile of an existing railroad parcel
(“Bellevue Mile”) that the Sound Transit Board approved in June 2011. The right-of-way program status for this period
is summarized in the following table. Market value trends in both residential and commercial properties are exhibiting
strong upward pressure. Appraisals are being adjusted to reflect this increasing trend in the market. The overall impact
on the Right-of-Way budget is being closely monitored. Efforts are also underway to prioritize acquisitions by contract
package to help ensure timely availability of property. Property acquisition is recognized as a high priority and is receiving the appropriate level of attention from the management team.

Final Design Schedule Performance
Excluding Other Direct Expenses (ODC’s), Profits and
DSDC, the Schedule Performance Index (SPI) reported
this period is at 0.99 when measuring against the Early
Schedule Baseline, and 1.10 when measuring against the
Late Schedule Baseline. E320 construction documents
IFB was submitted this period. Advertisement is planned
for April 2016. E335 design is progressing on schedule.
E340 design is progressing ahead of schedule and likely
to be completed before May 2016.
Final Design Cost Performance
Labor cost (for Phase 2 Final Design) to-date is
$78.3M, or 93.5%* of the budget. Progress earned
through the same period is approximately 93.7%* or
$78.4 M of earned value. This yields a cumulative
Cost Performance Index (CPI) of 1.00, which indicates approximately on-budget cost efficiency of the
current contract budget, including executed change
orders. Change orders are being negotiated and executed to address several changes that have to be done
in the design. However, Estimate At Completion
(EAC) is within the approved budget by Sound Transit Board.
* Please note – due to recent execution of multiple change
orders for this contract, the contract value (budget) has increased. Therefore, while the $ expenditure and $ value
earned have gone up compared to last period, the % expenditures and % earned have not increased proportionally.

East Link Extension Final Design - Seattle to S. Bellevue
Map of International District Station to South Bellevue.
Final Design Scope
Final Design for the East Link Extension is delivered by three major design contracts: two for civil improvements and
one for systems improvements. This Contract is for the civil and architectural design services from International District
Station (IDS) to South Bellevue. The contract was awarded to Parsons Brinkerhoff, Inc. (PB).
The scope of the services includes detailed design of the corridor, preparation of comprehensive construction contract
documents, permitting support, surveying, geotechnical investigation, right-of-way planning, third party coordination,
systems coordination, cost estimating, scheduling, sustainability report, bid support, preliminary hazards analysis, and
community outreach support.
The project in this segment has been aggregated into one Contract Package: E130 Rail Connection and Upgrades at
IDS; seismic Retrofits of WSDOT Structures; and I-90 Civil/Architectural, which also includes the two at-grade stations, and Electrical/Mechanical Upgrades to existing Tunnels.
Final Design Key Activities
The I-90 civil final design team is fully engaged in advancing the design toward the 90% milestone (2nd QTR
2016). The Consultant has supplemented the Design Team with additional staff and expertise. The Sound Transit
and Consultant management teams are actively monitoring progress, quality and deliverables to ensure contract requirements and expectations are met. The team is effectively executing the scope of work consistent with the needs of
the project.

Final Design Schedule Performance
Schedule information was not reported by the Consultant for the current reporting period, however, Sound Transit and
the Consultant are managing the work closely and agreed that the June 2016 submittal date is on target. A revised
baseline schedule was re-submitted by the Consultant; it is currently under review by ST. Once accepted, baseline milestones above will be revised by an administrative change order, and Earned Value reporting will commence.
Final Design Cost Performance
Because the baseline schedule has not been accepted, Cost Performance data was not submitted by the consultant for
the current reporting period. The current budget includes $25.8M in executed change orders, including a change order
for $17.9M for budget to complete Final Design (the negotiated Cost to Complete). A change order for $482K to include Post Tension Design in the contract has been authorized and is pending execution; this change includes a
$399.7K credit from the Bolt Testing Program, which is replaced by the Post Tension design. Including professional
fee, total Labor and Other Direct Costs for Final Design invoiced to-date is $38.2M, or 70.54% of the current authorized budget. Upon acceptance of the revised baseline schedule, a revised baseline cash flow for all remaining work will
be submitted by the consultant and monthly cost performance reporting will resume. Cost performance is being closely monitored to ensure project completion in a cost-effective and successful manner.

Cost Contingency Management
The overall project contingency balance as of this period is $65.3M.
Design Allowance (DA): After baselining the project the design allowance of $26.7M was added to the base estimate for
the design build work package. There will be no future reporting of DA.
Allocated Contingency (AC): This period the AC shows a current balance of $58.1M, a decrease of $0.4M from the previous period. The reduction was primarily due to change orders from S447 construction contract and startup commitments, and administration commitments.
Unallocated Contingency (UAC): ): This period the UAC balance remains unchanged from last period at $6.8M.

Risk Management
The South 200th Link Extension Risk Management Plan (RMP) established a risk management and oversight process
for assessing and monitoring risks to determine how risks have been reduced or mitigated. RMP captures scope
growth, schedule delay, and cost growth risks that could arise during any phase of the project and potentially affect
parts of the project scope. On a quarterly basis, the South 200th Link Extension team reviews and updates risk to reflect conditions. Below is a list of the top five major risk review items identified through 4th QTR 2015:

Construction: Delays due to City of SeaTac electrical inspections (S440).

Third Party: City of SeaTac permit approval of crucial elements of work at times is a hindrance (S440, S445, S447).

Construction: Delays due to L&I inspections and Certificate of Occupancy for elevators (S440 and S445).

Construction: Contract documents with design errors could impact cost and schedule (S447).

Construction: Poor engineering and limited involvement of Engineer of Record during Design Support During Construction lead to additional delays and cost (S447).

Critical Path Analysis
The critical path this period runs through procurement of OCS and Communications equipment through installation
and commissioning and system wide testing and integration and Pre-Revenue Service. Near critical path activities
include the completion of trackwork and procurement of signal equipment. U830 SCADA programming continues
to be monitored closely. The S445 Parking Garage construction is also being monitored closely due to its impact to
the Revenue Service. The Contractor is assessing the late elevator cab delivery and expects an update from the supplier next period.
Critical Path Float
S. 200th Link Extension Float
The float contingency for S. 200th Link Extension remains at 146 days but may require some float to be utilized for System Integration Testing and the late completion of elevators at the S445 parking garage. The Rail
Activation Schedule is reporting 64 days of float.

Right-of-Way
The South 200th Link Extension (S440) will extend from the SeaTac Airport Station along an elevated guideway to a
station combined with a park and ride garage at South 200th Street. The South 200th Link Extension involves the acquisition of a range of property interests, including fee acquisitions, permanent and temporary easements, and both business
and residential relocations. S447 covers road and utility improvements necessary as a result of the increased traffic that is
anticipated with the new station. S447 initially covered 28 parcels of which 10 were previously certified for S440. Six (6)
parcels that had ST acquisitions on S440 will also have acquisitions on S447. The right-of-way program is summarized

Link Light Rail
S. 200th Link Extension – Design-Build
S440 Contract—Design -Build (Guideway and Station)
Current Progress
Continuing drainage and handrail installation. OCS pole erection is complete. Register Wire installation will continue
through February 2016. OCS is expected to be energized in early 2016. Station is nearing completion. Overall the progress of this contract represents 94% physical completion as compared to 96% time to date.
Schedule/Critical Path
The schedule update has been received and is expected to be rejected due to the negative float on Milestone #7
(Systems Commissioning) which is reporting 61 days of negative float as the Contractor prepares to understand the
commissioning requirements for the train systems and coordination with the System Integration Testing. Milestone #5
(Guideway Commissioning) is reported to be complete. Milestone #10 (Substantial Completion) is reporting 51 days
of negative float. The critical path this period runs through the Communications activities and System Testing and Integration. Schedule coordination with the System Integration Testing Plan is expected to continue. Production rates will
also be monitored closely.
Schedule Performance Index
The SPI has risen slightly this period with guideway
complete, plinth and rail nearing completion, and
OCS pole installation commencement but remains below 1.0 at 0.98. Delays to the commencement of station construction, span erection, and an aggressive
baseline schedule continue to plague S440. The Contractor has been able to absorb these delays by shifting
the various work sequences. Testing and Commissioning Activities for the station have been added to the
schedule. Train Systems commissioning activities durations seem to be under represented in this schedule update.

Met with King County to discuss options for main sewer line protection or replacement. Developed 3 approaches
and associated costs.
Consultant continued work to finalize cost model update from last spring’s interim PE workshops.
Phase 2 Schedule Performance
The cumulative Schedule Performance Index (SPI)
trends at 0.67 through January 2016, which means that
cumulative work accomplished is less than the planned
work. The remaining Phase 2 scope has been renegotiated to reflect the recent Design Build Project Delivery decision. The consultant has been directed to focus
efforts on delivering Design Build bridging documents to
help inform the procurement of the final design build
team starting February 2016 as Phase 2A.
Phase 2 Cost Performance
$3.M of the total Phase 2 contract amount, approximately 56%, was spent through January 2016. The Phase 2
percent complete is 65%, with an earned value of $3.5M.
The cumulative Cost Performance Index (CPI) is 1.15,
meaning that expenditures are less than the earned value.
In January 2016 a change order restructuring the remaining scope to provide Design Build bridging documents
was approved and executed. Starting in February, the

Annual Staffing Summary 2015, continued

An average of 522.8 FTE/mo. consultant and in house staff participated in the major Link light rail projects in
2015. Overall, staffing was 21% over Plan for the year with internal staffing at 86% and consultant staffing 129% of
plan. Staffing met resource needs for maintaining schedule, addressing project technical challenges and issues and
providing stakeholder outreach. In the case of the University Link Extension sufficient technical capacity and capability was a key factor in the planned opening of the Extension for revenue service 6 months ahead of schedule and
$150 million below budget. Variance by project for 2015 follows.

University Link Extension: Staffing for 2015 was 137% of plan. Consultant staffing exceeded plan by 34% and
internal staffing by 15% largely because of the decision to advance station finishes and systems contractors activity
and complete the Maintenance-of-Way Building to achieve early opening in the first quarter of 2016.
Northgate Link Extension: Staffing for 2015 was 146% of plan. Consultant staffing was 70% above plan with the
early procurement of the General Contractor/Construction Manager GC/CM contractors and the Construction
Management Consultants (CMC) and the progression of tunneling and cross passage installation, and construction
of the Roosevelt and U District Station boxes. A larger number of consultant resources were used to provide additional capacity; internal staffing was 77% of plan for the year.
South 200th Link Extension: Staffing for 2015 was 116% of plan. Consultant staffing for the South 200th Extension was 126% of plan as construction of the guideway and parking garage neared substantial completion. Internal
staffing in 2015 was 85% of plan
East Link Extension: Staffing for 2015 was 112% of plan. Consultant staffing was 113% of plan and internal staffing 85% of plan. During 2015 final design was advanced and early procurement activities completed for the use of
GC/CM and the Design/Build (D/B) project delivery strategies. In addition the first of multiple construction contracts, E330, Downtown Bellevue Tunnel was awarded and negotiations with third parties continued.
Lynnwood Link Extension: Staffing for 2015 was 75% of plan. Internal and consultant staffing for 2015 trended
58% and 78% of plan respectively. During the development of the 2015 plan it was anticipated that final design
activities would begin in 4th QTR 2015; while the procurement activities were initiated, the design contracts were
not awarded.

Staffing Report
Annual Staffing Summary 2015, continued

In 2015, of the 13 Agency’s 33 annual milestones (See Milestones) were related to the capital program; Sound
Transit successfully met 10 of these milestones and met all but two of the milestones established for the major Link
Extensions: University, East, Northgate, South 200th and Lynnwood Link Extensions. The reasons for the unmet
milestones were unrelated to Agency technical capacity and capabilities. The unmet Link-related milestones: (1)
Completion of construction of the S. 200th Link Extension and (2) East Link design/build contract from SR 520 to
the Overlake Transit Center begins are now forecast for 2Q 2016. The inability to meet these Link milestones does
not impact the ability to open the S. 200th Link Extension for service in 3rd QTR 2016 or complete the East Link
Extension as scheduled in 2023.
Other unmet capital program milestones include the completion of the south platform of the Mukilteo Station, and
beginning of construction for the Sounder Yard Expansion and the Tacoma Trestle Replacement. These are also
now forecast for 2nd QTR 2016.

To meet the staffing requirements of on-going projects, 29 positions were filled in Design Engineering and Construction Management (DECM) in 2015 including systems engineering and construction management staff that we
had experienced some difficulty in recruiting. Eighteen of these positions were approved by the Board and had remained unfilled. In keeping with our commitment to retain institutional knowledge, capitalize on experience working on completed Sound Transit projects and familiarity with our processes, systems, policies and procedures and to
provide advancement opportunities for our staff, 10 of these positions were filled through internal promotions. The
voluntary attrition rate for DECM in 2015 was 4.2% (7 of the 235 FTE working in DECM voluntarily left the
Agency in to pursue other opportunities; 3 DECM staff retired from Sound Transit in 2015).

Over $240 million in engineering and construction service contracts were awarded in 2015. We continue to recognize value in using GC/CM and D/B alternative procurement methods, four of the 13 contracts awarded in 2015
were for preconstruction services for GC/CM; the SR 520 – Redmond Transit Center, Link Operations and
Maintenance Satellite Facility and Sounder Yard Expansion are being procured using a D/B delivery strategy
(Table 2). We are also in the process of procuring final design and GC/CM preconstruction services (two contracts) for the Lynnwood Link Extension and final design for the Tacoma Link Expansion which like the Tacoma
Trestle replacement is being procured using a Design-Bid-Build contracting strategy. A summary of contracts to be
awarded in 2016 follows (Table 3).

In 2015, Sound Transit continued the Lean, Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) and Management Excellence
programs. Sound Transit provided Kaizen training to an additional 157 staff members bringing the total trained to
307 or 40% of Sound Transit staff approved for 2015. In its second year, 22 staff members participated in our yearlong Management Excellence Program (MEP). Through this program participants receive 100 hours of training in
advanced project management, interpersonal relations, and Continuous Process Improvement (CPI). In 2015 the
Program was awarded the Achievements in Transit Training Model Program Award by the National Transit Institute. Sound Transit has accepted an additional 41 staff members to participate in the 2016 MEP starting in 2Q
2016.

Sound Transit continues to enjoy a partnership with the American Council of Consulting Engineers (ACEC) and
the Association of General Contractors (AGC) of Washington whose membership work with Sound Transit to gain
a better understanding of the work program and the systems and processes put in place to ensure on time and budget project performance. These trade groups share industry trends, lessons-learned and experiences with other transit
providers and Sound Transit. Sound Transit is fortunate that a number of its consultants and contractors also have
direct experience with both Link and non-Link related transit infrastructure development, minimizing the learning
curve and enhancing project delivery.

There were 547.5 (115% of plan) consultant and internal staff full time equivalents (FTE) participated in the on-going
planning, design and construction of Link light rail extensions. Average year-to-date staffing remains at 522.8 FTE/
mo. and is 21% (90.6 FTE/mo.) above plan. December staffing for the each of the Link Extensions with the exception
of the Lynnwood Link Extension was above plan by over 10%. Staffing for the University Link exceeded plan because
of the planned early opening. Staffing for the East and Northgate Link Extensions exceeded to plan to provide appropriate staffing for early procurement of the GC/CM, and D/B contractors and Construction Management Consultants
(CMC). Early procurement has become standard practice for GC/CM and D/B contracting to allow for closer coordination with the contractors, designers and construction managers and improved constructability.
Consultant staffing for the Lynnwood Link Extension was 31% of plan; internal staffing was 68% of plan. During plan
development it was assumed that final design would begin in 4th QTR 2015; final design is now scheduled to begin in
1st QTR 2016. Staffing variance to plan for the month by project follows.
