Sound Transit's Northgate Station contractor, Absher Construction Company, is making very visible progress as columns to support the future elevated station begin to rise out of the ground along 1st Avenue Northeast near Northeast 103rd Street.

Crews also began prepping their work area in the Northgate Interim Park-and-Ride Lot B ahead of drilled shaft and column work at this site. Drilling is expected to take approximately two weeks and once it's complete, the commuter parking stalls will be returned to their usual configuration.
