Judkins Park Station entrances take shape
Over the last few months, the Judkins Park Station has begun to take shape. Crews have formed and poured concrete walls and foundations, while elevator shafts have emerged from the ground. Much of the work has been focused on the station's entrances at 23rd Avenue South. and at the entrances on both sides of Rainier Avenue South. This summer, work will continue to frame the entrances with structural steel, elevators and escalators will be installed, and work will begin to construct the station's sound walls.
