TriMet MAX Blue Line Construction Affects Several Hillsboro Stops Oct. 13-27

trimetPacific University community members who utilize TriMet mass transit should be aware of the agency's planned construction project to improve the MAX Blue Line in Hillsboro.

The project will result in service changes for MAX riders from Oct. 13-27. During this time, train service will be replaced by bus shuttles beginning at the Fair Complex/Hillsboro Airport station to the end of the line (Hatfield Government Center station). This includes the Tuality Hospital/SE 8th Avenue station that serves the university's Hillsboro Campus. The stations will be closed, and the bus shuttle pickup and drop-off areas will be located nearby.

During the disruption, crews will be improving the surface of platforms and making other repairs at closed stations. Work hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., during which expected noise will likely result from the construction, including the use of power saws, jackhammering, grinding, truck engines and backup warnings on vehicles.

TriMet has provided complete information about the project, including a detailed list of disruptions throughout the area.
