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.
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.
: 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.
