Last I heard (which was last week), Bottineau is still planned to open during late 2021. The goal is for the construction on both projects to occur almost simultaneously (though slightly offset) if Bottineau doesn't encounter any more delays, however there is concern that both projects would also conflict with the Gateway project, effectively exhausting materials and labor needed to complete all three projects, and most likely causing a delay in one of the projects (hopefully Gateway?). It is unrealistic to go through with three major transit projects in the same metro in the same 3 years.PigsEye wrote:What is the most recent timeline for construction? Has it been delayed much? Could we see the blue line construction start before the green line extension is completed?
In essence, every project is still sticking with its previously announced schedule (except SWLRT), though they may encounter problems because of it.
