The first section of concrete slab for the Winter Park Express train platform at Winter Park resort was poured on September 29. The second concrete pouring will take place on Wednesday, October 5 and the project will be about half complete, according to Winter Park Resort Director of Public Relations and Communications Steve Hurlbert.

The second part of the project includes the installation of a heating element and additional infrastructure work around West Portal at the base of the resort. Hurlbert stated that everything is right on schedule and progressing well.

“Calcon Construction has been doing a great job working with Union Pacific to make sure the project is 100% compliant to railroad safety protocols.” Hurlbert stated in an email.

“It’s amazing how quickly it’s all coming together.”
