TriMet’s E 122nd Ave MAX Station to undergo renovation beginning December 3


Temporary platforms used to keep station open during improvement project

TriMet’s E 122nd Ave MAX Station will get a complete makeover beginning Sunday, Dec. 3.

The renovation includes:

  • Improved shelters
  • Larger windscreens
  • Updated lighting and security cameras
  • New signs and digital TransitTracker displays
  • Deep cleaning, painting and surface repairs

The project, similar to the Gresham City Hall MAX Station upgrades completed this past summer, will last approximately six months until June 2018.

Temporary platforms keep station open

Temporary platforms will be installed to keep the E 122nd Ave Station open during the project and lessen the impact on our riders. The temporary platforms will be assembled in the left turn lanes on East Burnside Street on both the east and west side of 122nd Avenue beginning Monday, Nov. 27. The platforms will have all the amenities of the permanent ones including lighting, shelters, security cameras, Hop Fastpass™ readers, ticket machines/validators, tactile warning strips and customer information signs.

For westbound trips toward City Center and Hillsboro, board MAX trains at the temporary platform on the east side of 122nd Avenue (Stop ID 8368). For eastbound trips, board at the temporary platform on the west side of 122nd Avenue (Stop ID 8349).

The Line 73-122nd Ave northbound bus stop near the station (Stop ID 6621) will be moved for the duration of the project. The temporary stop will be on the north side of Burnside Street, next to the Dick Hannah Volkswagen dealership.

Traffic impacts

The construction will affect turns on both 122nd Avenue and Burnside Street, as well as close Burnside during weekday daytime hours.

Making Transit Better

TriMet is reinvesting in the MAX system, making improvements to tracks and stations to increase on-time performance and enhance the customer experience. As part of our efforts to make our transit service better, we are renovating 14 of our oldest Blue Line stations between Hollywood/NE 42nd Ave Transit Center and Cleveland Ave, including the E 122nd Ave Station.
