TriMet News: Rail crossing improvements in Gresham to affect MAX service, auto traffic

TriMet’s next MAX project will improve the rail crossing at the intersection of E 181st Avenue and E Burnside Street. The tracks have settled leading to a bumpy ride for both MAX passengers and autos going through the crossing. MAX service will be disrupted Friday night, Aug. 17 through Saturday, Aug. 18, as crews lift and repair the trackbed under the eastbound rails that cross 181st Avenue. Crews will also replace a switch machine near the Ruby Junction/E 197th Ave MAX Station at the same time. More.
