The main objectives of this rebuild are:
- Replace the between-the-tracks northbound platform with a safer outside platform that will allow passengers to board without standing on the southbound tracks.
- Move platforms, close a minor street, so that trains no longer block traffic when stopped.
- General aesthetic improvements.
These are all good things, though the price tag of $20 million seems a bit steep. On the other hand, I was passing through a few weeks ago on a Sunday,
and maybe this is all more complicated than I realized. Where's the tracks?
Everything was apparently all put back together in time for Monday morning's commute.
Still, that's a big chunk of change, and we're not talking about anything fancy like grade separation or a pedestrian tunnel here. That better be some kick-ass landscaping!
