Sound Transit reports that construction is ready to begin on the permanent Sounder commuter rail station in Edmonds. Pellco Construction Inc. has been selected as the contractor for the project and Harris & Associates will provide construction management services. Construction is expected to start in mid-August and will be completed in spring 2011.
Sounder service to Edmonds Station and Amtrak train service will continue during construction. Commuter parking will be impacted and parking areas will shift or be restricted during construction. A temporary parking area south of the station on Admiral Way will provide additional parking capacity. Parking information will be posted at the station and on the Sound Transit website
The construction team will closely coordinate activity with ongoing work by the BNSF Railway in the area and work by the City of Edmonds to upgrade sewer lines next to the station, Sound Transit said.
