Chris Poehler, P.E, project director for Cross County MetroLink, says the new extension is the most challenging of all the MetroLink segments.
"I've worked on all four of them, and this one is very different and more challenging because of the corridor," he says.
"Part of the alignment is on abandoned rail right-of-way, but the first half of the extension — the east-west part — is not.
It is situated in a tight corridor and construction is taking place very near people's homes, so the main issue is coordination with people in the various communities."
Cross County MetroLink features a significant amount of below grade construction.

Currently, approximately 650 workers are involved with the project.
