TriMet wrapping renovations on two MAX stations

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Two popular TriMet MAX stops are getting upgrades to offer riders a brighter atmosphere and new amenities.

At the Washington Park Station, crews are not just cleaning up but also updating the lighting and adding a colorful new mural highlighting the park's many attractions.

At 260 feet below ground-level, the Washington Park Station is the deepest transit station in North America.

Crews are working on the clean up through August 10, so riders are advised keep an eye out for the work.

On the east side of the metro, the Gresham City Hall MAX Station has gone through a complete renovation.

The station has new transit tracker monitors, better lighting and new warning strips on the platform edges.

"These safety and security upgrades, along with amenity improvements, will give the Gresham City Hall MAX Station a much lighter and brighter aesthetic," TriMet Guideways Manager Paige Schlupp said. "We thank our riders for their patience during construction as we worked to improve their experience and our light rail system."

The next MAX Blue Line station scheduled for upgrades is the East 122nd Avenue Station. Crews are scheduled to begin construction on that project in the fall.
