Lloyd District MAX and bus service disrupted due to track work

What’s happening?

Monday-Friday, August 11-15, crews will replace a MAX track switch located in the intersection of NE 11th Avenue and Holladay Street. MAX will not run between Rose Quarter/Convention Center and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave MAX stations. The switch replacement is part of ongoing investments that ensure our system remains safe and efficient for years to come.

Additionally, shuttles will run between Interstate Rose Quarter and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave MAX stations for Green Line riders going to or from Portland City Center. If you take a shuttle, plan ahead and allow an extra 30-60 minutes for your trip.

We encourage walking between stations, if you can.
On average, it will take you 10 minutes to walk between Rose Quarter/Convention Center MAX stations and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave MAX Station. Follow the signs to the pedestrian route. Stay on the sidewalk on the south side of Holladay Street and obey crosswalk signals, as it is the safest and fastest route.

If you bring your bike on MAX, you should either walk or ride between stations.
It takes about 10 minutes to ride between Rose Quarter/Convention Center MAX stations and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave MAX Station. Shuttle buses have limited space for bikes, which may cause an additional wait. Follow the signs to the cyclist route. Use NE 11th Avenue, Multnomah Street and NE Wheeler Avenue, as it is the safest and fastest route. Please walk your bike along NE 11th Avenue and through Rose Quarter Transit Center. Obey all traffic signals along the route and use extra caution around buses. If you choose to walk your bike to the Rose Quarter area, follow the signs to the pedestrian route.
