It snowed a couple of inches in Eden Prairie on Monday. On Tuesday, the contractor for the Southwest LRT project poured almost a football-field sized concrete slab for the main floor in the new park-and-ride ramp and combined bus and LRT station, all next to the existing SouthWest Station. That’s Purgatory Creek in the background, and Technology Drive. The train loading platforms are to the right of the new slab. Far right will be the bus assembly area. The cement gets a blanket and heat after pouring. Read the longer construction update for the Eden Prairie segment of the Southwest LRT project that’s available from the Metropolitan Council.
