Gresham MAX Improvements

MAX Blue Line disrupted between 172nd Avenue and Cleveland Avenue April 7–13, 2024

The disruption will be limited to the MAX Blue Line.

Shuttle buses will run in place of MAX Blue Line trains, but we encourage you to plan up to an extra 30 minutes for your trips.

The disruption is necessary to improve the rail crossing at the intersection of E. Burnside and Stark Streets.

Regular MAX Blue Line service will resume on April 14, 2024.
