Having demolished one of the I-90 bridges that crossed Rainier Ave. in October, construction at the Judkins Park Station continues to progress. Since October, crews have demolished and excavated the site; have begun to form and pour concrete walls for the station’s east entrance and platform; and have completed rail welding. In the coming months, the station’s entrances and platform will continue to take shape. Check out recent photos of construction progress below.
