MAX Delays Aug 21 – Sep 3

From the start of service August 21 through the end of service September 3, TriMet will be upgrading tracks, switches and signals near the Rose Quarter to improve MAX’s reliability and make for a smoother ride.

During this time, MAX Blue, Green and Red lines will be disrupted and three MAX stations will close (Rose Quarter Transit Center, Convention Center and NE 7th Ave). All MAX lines will run at reduced frequency.

Traffic Advisory

Street improvements on NE Grand Avenue to close lanes from
NE Lloyd Boulevard to NE Holladay Street, July 24-Aug. 1
(July 22, 2015)  – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that street improvements will require lane closures on NE Grand Avenue from NE Lloyd Boulevard to NE Holladay Street starting Friday, July 24, through Saturday, Aug. 1, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each work day.

The lane closures will allow crews to pave .92 lane miles of NE Grand Avenue.

Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. Lane closures are only in effect during project hours. Access will be maintained for businesses, residents and TriMet service during the project.

The traveling public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.

This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change.
