What’s Happening?

Beginning in late September, 2021, Christensen, Inc., began construction of site improvements in the southwest corner of the Olympia Transit Center (OTC) site, adjacent to State Avenue and Washington Street.

Site improvements include:

  • New sidewalks and ADA ramps along State Avenue and Washington Street.
  • New pathways to improve pedestrian flow onsite and crossing to the main bus platform.
  • Updated landscaping.
  • Updated lighting, benches, and amenities.

Construction is anticipated to be completed mid-December of 2021, weather permitting.

What to Expect During Construction

Typical construction hours are weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pedestrians and riders can expect sidewalk closures on State Avenue (between Franklin Street and Washington Street) and on Washington Street (from State Avenue to mid-block on Washington Street). The bus stop on State Avenue (The One) will be relocated during construction. Riders who access services at the Olympia Transit Center should be aware of the potential for temporary closures and pedestrian detours, pay attention to posted notices, and plan additional time to reach their bus stop. Construction is not anticipated to impact bus arrivals and transfers occurring on the main bus platform at the Olympia Transit Center.  

During construction this fall pedestrians and motorists may also notice:

  • Noise, dust, and debris.
  • Lane closures.
  • Impacts to traffic flow.
  • Large truck and equipment activity.
