Construction activity on the Mill Plain corridor continued at full speed in June, 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 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.
In June, workers completed major work in the downtown Vancouver area. That includes two new BRT stations—Evergreen and C Street eastbound, and Evergreen and Broadway westbound—plus modifications to the existing BRT station at Turtle Place. Crews also installed a shelter structure at Mill Plain and Reserve Street in June. Additional shelter structures will continue to arrive in the coming months as work progresses at other locations.
Station construction will continue on the west end of the project corridor in July. Crews will begin 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.
