There is still plenty of work to do; crews will demobilize drilling equipment from the site and continue to form the columns through the summer.

Northgate ped/bike bridge open house on August 3

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will host an open house from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 3 at the Hampton Inn to share information on projects to improve walking and biking in Northgate, including the new ped/bike bridge that will connect the Northgate Link station to the west side of I-5. Attend the open house—or participate online Aug. 3 to 24—to learn about the revised bridge design, the most promising route for the Northgate Neighborhood Greenway, and other transportation projects and programs in Northgate. Visit SDOT's webpage for more information.

Sound Transit will also staff a Northgate Link project information table at the open house.

Roosevelt Station concrete pours continue

In case you missed it, check out time-lapse footage of thousands of yards of concrete being placed at the Roosevelt Station site. With the 8-foot thick station floor complete, crews will focus on wall pours over the next few months.

U District tower cranes going up

U District neighbors will notice two new tower cranes above the gold wall at the U District Station site. The first of the two cranes was installed the weekend of July 22nd and the second went up the weekend of July 29th. These new cranes will help Hoffman Construction Company place thousands of yards of concrete and thousands of pounds of rebar to build the station.
