Western Light Rail Option Two: Half up, half down
Half Up, Half Down
To reduce the impact of a large bridge, the LRT would be lowered as far as possible, without requiring substantial reworking of Pinecrest Creek. The lowered LRT profile allows for a shorter bridge and no impact on residential properties along Iris Street. Pedestrians would access the station via stairs and elevators from the bridge and ramps to grade on each side of the LRT. Some modification of Pinecrest Creek is required to create enough vertical clearance to fit all of the elements into the site.
