MAX Blue Line Improvements Project

This spring, we’re doing work along the entire length of MAX Blue Line. We’ll be replacing sections of rail ranging from 20 to 1,300 feet, and making other improvements, including rebuilding rail crossings at Gateway Transit Center where buses cross MAX tracks.

Much of the work will be done in overnight hours or in a way it doesn’t disrupt MAX service. However, there will be times when trains will run in both directions on a single track on the westside. There will also be a few times when shuttle buses will replace trains in areas on the eastside.

There will be limited capacity on shuttle buses due to COVID-19. Riders planning to use TriMet to reach their vaccination appointment will want to give themselves even more time to ensure they reach their appointment ahead of their scheduled time.

 

NE Portland: May 15–23

Trains will be disrupted on the MAX Blue, Green and Red lines. Shuttle buses will serve stations between NE 7th Ave and Gateway Transit Center. There will be no MAX Green and Red Line service west of Gateway, and trains will arrive less often in sections. Riders should plan an extra 30 minutes for trips.
