There will be MAX service disruptions in Hillsboro for the next eight days as crews begin major renovations as part of TriMet’s A Better Red project. Starting Saturday, the west end of the Blue Line will be shut down. Six Blue Line stops from Orenco Station to the end of the line in Hillsboro will be closed.
