TriMet's MAX Green Line opens to the public on Saturday, September 12, and reaches a major milestone of connecting all three counties by light rail. TriMet's fifth MAX line extends from downtown Portland to Clackamas County.
Construction of the
8.3-mile line began in early 2007 and adds a second light rail alignment
through downtown Portland along 5th and 6th avenues between Union Station and
Portland State University, and new tracks along I-205 to Clackamas Town
There will be opening ceremonies
at Clackamas Town Center and at Portland State University Urban Center. Public
celebrations with entertainment and children’s activities will be held at five
locations along the new Green Line beginning at 11:30 a.m. Green Line opening day
events for the public are underwritten in part by sponsor contributions.
