TriMet crews have completed renovations to the Gresham City Hall MAX Station, which upgraded one of the oldest light rail stations in the system with safety and accessibility improvements.
The changes include a better shelter, new TransitTracker monitors, improved lighting and tactile 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," said TriMet Guideways Manager Paige Schlupp, of TriMet's Capital Projects and Construction department. "We thank our riders for their patience during construction as we worked to improve their experience and our light rail system."
The rehabilitation began in January as part of a series of improvements to MAX stations along the original Eastside Blue Line. Fourteen Blue Line stations between the Hollywood/Northeast 42nd Avenue Transit Center and Cleveland are being renovated through the multi-year effort.
