E Branch Track and Intersection Upgrades 100% Complete

Updated on August 30, 2021

On Saturday, August 28, we completed the 28-day E Branch Track and Intersection Upgrades project a day early.

Crews completed what would have been a year’s worth of night and weekend work in just 27 days of full closure. This project improved safety, reliability, and accessibility for riders, pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers while minimizing disruption.
