MERCER ISLAND, Wash. – Mercer Island city officials have reached a last-minute tentative settlement with Sound Transit over light rail construction along Interstate 90 that the city has claimed would cripple the commute for people living there.

The tentative settlement follows a 6 1/2-hour executive session of the Mercer Island City Council late Wednesday. The council then returned to open session after midnight Thursday and voted to approve the settlement agreement.

The settlement supersedes a request by the city for a court injunction to halt the East Link project construction. A hearing on the injunction had been scheduled for Thursday morning, and is now canceled.
