Morrison-Yamhill MAX Improvements

Through end of service on Saturday, May 20, TriMet crews will be improving MAX tracks on SW Morrison and SW Yamhill streets in Downtown Portland to make your ride smoother and more reliable.

Blue and Red line trains will be detoured along the Transit Mall on SW 5th and SW 6th avenues. Shuttle buses will provide service between Rose Quarter and Providence Park. Blue Line trains, but no Red Line trains, will be running west of Providence Park.

MAX Green Line will only run between Clackamas and Rose Quarter Transit Center.

Pioneer Courthouse Square Parks Replacement Bond Renovations

For the Parks Replacement Bond renovations at Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland Parks & Recreation is directing 36% of construction dollars for the project through minority-owned, women-owned, and emerging small businesses, far exceeding the City of Portland’s goal of 20%. On this project, approximately 2,000 hours of work are being performed by these businesses. This diverse participation is thanks to a unique partner agreement that contractor Howard S. Wright established with Faison Construction, a local minority-owned firm.

HSW provides oversight and acts as Faison’s mentor while Faison manages the interior renovations at the Square, including the new all-user public restrooms and the subcontractors. These partnerships allow emerging businesses to gain experience and build capacity. By working with Howard S. Wright on past projects, Faison has transitioned to becoming a general contractor that is better able to contribute to future local projects. Faison’s owner, James Faison, is thrilled that the City understands the benefits of building a team that reflects the diversity of its community.

This week, crews will continue to lay waterproof membrane on the upper tier of the Square, restore the waterfall fountain at the entrance to the Visitor Information Center, and begin work on the HVAC system inside. For more information on the Parks Replacement Bond, click here.
