Station in Portland’s Lloyd District to reopen after 13-month closure for adjacent building project

The NE 7th Ave MAX Station in Portland’s Lloyd District will soon re-open after more than a year-long closure due to a multi-story apartment building being constructed next to the station. The station as well as the city sidewalk on the north side of Holladay Street between 7th and 9th avenues will reopen Sunday, May 3.

Turner Construction Company has been erecting the “Hassalo on Eighth” multi-story apartments to the north side of Holladay Street. For the safety of our riders and pedestrians in the area, the sidewalk and platforms were closed due to the overhead heavy construction work.

TriMet took advantage of the closure to lay the groundwork for TriMet’s upcoming state-of-the-art electronic fare system. The work at that station will wrap up this week.

The e-fare system, scheduled to be up and running by the end of 2017, will make it faster, easier and more convenient to ride the bus or train. Visit trimet.org/efare for additional information on the upcoming e-fare system and additional information and schedules for the construction, or sign up for email updates to get a heads-up on upcoming station impacts.
