The City’s design consultant team at Olsson has submitted 90% plans to the City for review and presented plans and renderings to City Council in July of 2023. Final plans are anticipated to be completed by the end of September. The Environmental and Cultural Permitting is currently underway, and the project team is continuing to coordinate with BNSF, the Army Corp of Engineers, State Historic Preservation Office, and several tribal agencies as we move through the project permitting process.

The project is expected to be advertised for contractor bidding in the 2nd quarter of 2024 and be under construction by August.

The project team is planning a public meeting this spring and anticipates providing a construction schedule at that time.
