SUMMARY

Utility workers at Devine Road stationConstruction activity on the Mill Plain corridor continued to ramp up in April, with more substantial work occurring at some locations, and other sites seeing activity for the first time. Overall, construction remains focused primarily on the west side of the project corridor. 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 at several locations. On the east end of the corridor and elsewhere, preparations continued for fiber and utility work that will happen concurrently with station construction.

MILESTONES

In April, four new station locations saw construction activity for the first time—Evergreen and Broadway, Devine Road, Andresen Road, and 97th Avenue—bringing the total number of active sites to 12. That means the first phase of construction is now full steam ahead, and crews will begin to complete some of those sites in the coming weeks and months before moving on to new locations.

WHAT’S NEXT?

Station construction will continue on the west end of the project corridor in May. That will include the installation of the first steel shelter structures. 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 activity started in late January at multiple locations. The following station locations along the Mill Plain corridor will see construction activity during the initial phase of work:

  • Seventh Street at Turtle Place
  • Evergreen and C Street (eastbound)
  • Fort Vancouver Way (eastbound)
  • Reserve Street (westbound)
  • V Street (eastbound)
  • Grand Boulevard (westbound)
  • Brandt Road (eastbound)
  • Garrison Road (westbound)
  • Andresen Road (westbound)
  • 97th Avenue (westbound)
  • Evergreen and Broadway (westbound -- starting in April 2022)

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.
