Here’s the latest construction update on the Edmonds Sounder commuter train station, from Sound Transit:

Next week or the in first week of January, the contractor will relocate a construction trailer to the temporary parking lot north of the Amtrak depot. Approximately six parking stalls will be occupied by the construction trailer and these parking spaces will not be available to commuters until further notice. The trailer is being moved in order to demolish and pave the area east of the Amtrak depot and complete finishing work.

Last week and this week sections of the platform are being formed and crews have started to pour sections of the platform. Platforms pours are expected to be finished in early January.

Work on the new accessible ramp started last week and it should be formed and poured by early January. When completed, handrails will be installed and the existing accessible ramp will be demolished and removed when the new ramp is ready for service.

Electrical work to the Communication structure was completed last week and a roof will be installed next week. Crews continue to form and pour light bases in the south parking lot area in preparation for new lighting poles and fixtures.

  1. Why is a permanent handicaped accessible ramp being constructed in the right of way for the second rail which is
    5 years behind schedule?
