The west side of Washington St. continues to be excavated. The temporary sheeting required for the construction of the retaining wall along the south side of Washington St. will start within the next week. The railroad shoofly continues to make progress. The construction of the temporary Metra platform has begun. This work will not impact the current platform or any commuters. The switch of the railroad to the temporary shoofly will be the weekend of Dec. 5/6. Once the RR traffic is switched over to the RR shoofly, commuters will use the temporary platform. Other ongoing work includes the further installation of the pump station.
