Drilling work to resume at the Northgate Interim Park and Ride Lot B
Starting Monday, June 5th, crews will continue drilling the shafts for the columns that will support the elevated guideway on the Northgate Interim Park and Ride Lot B property, located at 9580 1st Avenue Northeast.
During the drilling work, some commuter parking spaces in the lot will be used to stage construction equipment. Additional spaces in the lot normally reserved for construction parking will be made available to replace the temporary loss of commuter stalls. These stalls will be located mostly on the southern portion of Interim Lot B. Signage will indicate which stalls are available for commuters.
Drilling is expected to take approximately two weeks and once it's complete, the commuter parking stalls will be returned.
Roosevelt Station update
The Roosevelt Station contractor, Hoffman Construction Company, is nearing the halfway point in building the 8-foot thick station floor. During the past several weeks, they have placed 4,027 cubic yards of concrete and have 6,481 yards left to go. Thanks to the Roosevelt neighbors for being patient and alert as concrete trucks enter and exit the site to complete this work.
