Cars Sharing Lower Main Street: Construction Update May 8, 2019

We had a busy startup to Cars Sharing Main Street spring construction.

Construction Updates:

  • Two catenary pole foundations were installed last week and weekend, near Scott Street, including two nights of overnight work.  All went well and the foundations are now hidden below grade.  There isn’t much above ground to see, but there was successful coordination from many organizations along the full length of the Metro surface section.  Thank you to the hotels for your patience and understanding!
  • Water line installation near East Canal Park is underway.  If all goes according to plan, this will be complete after another week, and the east side pedestrian walkway will be widened in time for summer Canalside activity.
  • Track bed and rail replacement work has started near One Canalside, on the east side of the street.  Work will proceed south for the next two months.
  • The west side of Main Street is fully open for pedestrians.  Metro Rail is open on the west side of Main for both inbound and outbound service.
