SUMMARY

Evergreen and C Street

Construction activity on the Mill Plain corridor continued at full speed in August, with more substantial work occurring at some locations as future BRT stations begin to take shape. Overall, construction remains focused primarily on the west side of the project corridor, between Fort Vancouver Way and 97th Avenue. Specific tasks have included excavation, sidewalk work and adding concrete bus pads in the roadway. Crews have also set the foundations of what will become station platforms. Steel shelter structures have now been installed at several locations. On the east end of the corridor and elsewhere, fiber and utility work continues to happen concurrently with station construction.

MILESTONES

In August, crews installed two more shelter structures at future BRT stations: Mill Plain and Brandt Road eastbound, and Mill Plain and Garrison Road westbound. Workers also workers continued work on the new Mill Plain Transit Center at the east end of the corridor, near Mill Plain and 184th Avenue. The new facility will open as part of The Vine on Mill Plain, serving the new bus rapid transit line, plus other Local bus routes. Construction on the transit center will continue through the rest of 2022 and 2023 as individual stations are built along the rest of the corridor.

WHAT’S NEXT?

: Station construction will continue on the west end of the project corridor in September. Crews will ramp up work at some new locations, as activity at other sites winds down. That’s part of the phased approach to construction, so different locations see activity at different times. For fiber and utility work, activity will increase on the east end of the corridor.

Construction Overview

C-TRAN officially broke ground on the Mill Plain BRT project in September 2021. Construction areas will include a new transit center near 184th Avenue and Mill Plain, and 37 new station platforms along the 10-mile Mill Plain corridor.

Construction will occur in phases during the two-year work period, meaning different areas will see construction activity at different times.

Current activity

Construction is underway at multiple locations. Expect to see construction activity at these future BRT station locations along the Mill Plain corridor:

  • Seventh Street at Turtle Place
  • Fort Vancouver Way (eastbound)
  • Fort Vancouver Way (westbound)
  • Reserve Street (westbound)
  • Reserve Street (eastbound)
  • V Street (eastbound)
  • V Street (westbound)
  • Grand Boulevard (westbound)
  • Brandt Road (eastbound)
  • Devine Road (westbound)
  • Andresen Road (westbound)
  • Garrison Road (westbound)
  • 87th Avenue (eastbound)
  • 97th Avenue (westbound)
  • 184th Way (Mill Plain Transit Center)

The length of construction at each location will vary as crews work to complete each new station. Each phase of work is expected to last approximately four to six months. The public should expect temporary closures of sidewalks, bus stops and traffic lanes; however, access to adjacent businesses will remain open.
