MAX Blue Line Station

Renovating MAX Blue Line Stations and Crossings

We’re continually making improvements to some of our oldest MAX stations and pedestrian crossings along the Blue Line.

We kicked off a series of improvements to eastside Blue Line MAX stations in 2015. In total, 14 stations between Hollywood/NE 42nd Ave Transit Center and Cleveland Ave will be renovated under this multi-year program.

Recently completed projects

E 162nd Ave MAX Station

We installed larger windscreens, shelter roofs, new digital arrival displays and updated lighting and security cameras.

Additional crossing improvements

We’re also making safety improvements at several Blue Line pedestrian crossings in Gresham and Hillsboro. The sidewalks will be realigned to be perpendicular to the MAX tracks, and new pedestrian warning systems, lighting and channeling will be installed. This work will be completed throughout 2017 and 2018.

Watch for crossing improvements under way at these intersections:

  • NW Division & NW Mignonette (Gresham)
  • NE Main & NE 10th Drive (Gresham)
  • NE Hood & NE 10th Drive (Gresham)
  • NE Kelly & NE 10th Drive (Gresham)
  • SE 10th & Washington Street (Hillsboro)
  • NE 28th Avenue (Hillsboro)
  • SW 185th Avenue (Beaverton)
  • SW 170th Avenue (Beaverton)
  • SW 158th Avenue & Merlo Road (Beaverton)

Most of the work will be done Monday through Saturday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. However, some work may take place outside of those hours as necessary.
