The Mill Plain Bus Rapid Transit Center and Corridor project in Vancouver, WA will be the second bus rapid transit line in Clark County, after The Vine on Vancouver’s Fourth Plain corridor, which Tapani also constructed. The new project will operate on the Mill Plain corridor, stretching about 10 miles between downtown and east Vancouver. This project will add 36 new and enhanced bus station platforms, allowing C-TRAN to add larger buses to provide Mill Plain with faster, more efficient, and more reliable transit service. The project also includes a new nine-bay transit center with a 950 square foot driver relief building and customer service office serving multiple routes on east Mill Plain near Clark College’s Columbia Tech Center campus.
Work at each station consists of excavation and utilities, concrete flatwork, steel shelter installation, windscreens, tile pavers, metal roofing, and electrical upgrades. The structural concrete work for the stations includes 2,500 cubic yards of cement concrete road paving, 500 cubic yards of concrete, and 4,700 square yards of colored concrete platform. The project is expected to be completed in November 2023.
