Sound Transit said that it will complete the new accessible ramp at the Edmonds Sounder Station by the middle to the end of this week. The remaining portion of the old ramp will be removed and the temporary passenger platform detour around the work area will end.

As a result, commuters from the north end of the station will walk over the new accessible ramp heading south along the platform. The new concrete ramp replaces the deteriorating temporary wood ramp that had been in place since service started to the station.

By the end of this week, crews will finish pouring concrete for the north platform section, Sound Transit said. When finished, the entire platform will be have been poured with the exception of the area around the ticket vending machines. This section will be completed when the ticket vending machines are moved to their permanent location next month.

All of the new passenger shelters have been assembled and installed. Commuters will begin to see the new shelters as they are uncovered and painted this week. The new decking will be installed on the canopy section of the shelters after next week.
