If you haven’t already noticed, construction for the East Link Light Rail is underway, as of April 2nd. They’ll be working up to street-level along the 77th Avenue Southeast overpass, as part of the station plaza construction – and we can’t wait to see it take shape!
Crews have already installed temporary fencing, while they prepare and demolish parts of the existing landscape and then “install the headhouses structural steel, decking, and windows.” Work along 80th Avenue Southeast will follow during later steps in the year.
Expect work to continue daily, Monday-Friday from 7:00am-7:00pm, and the occasional Saturday should be expected. Construction is expected to continue into 2019.
It doesn’t appear that roads will be impacted, though the sidewalk will be redirected along an alternative pathway. The I-90 roadway will remain permanently closed.
We’re highly anticipating the arrival of our Station Plaza, as it’s another tick on the timeline towards our 2023 completion date.
