There may not be any shovels in the ground yet but work is starting on the Evergreen Line.

Port Moody has sold a portion of land south of the CP Rail tracks, roughly between Clarke and Moody streets, to make way for the rapid transit project.

Colleen Rohde, director of legislative services, said the three separate properties, all of them bare land, sold for $187,535.68.

When the 11-km Evergreen Line pops out of the Clarke Road tunnel and continues beside Moody Centre it will require some relocation of the CP Rail tracks. This work, as well as other projects to prepare for Evergreen Line construction, are expected to start early next year.

The $1.4-billion line is set to be up and running in the summer of 2016.
