is the name of the light rail
extension in North Portland, Oregon
opening in 2004. The 5.8 mile, 10-station extension is expected to cost $350 million. It joins the 1986 Eastside MAX
alignment between the Steel Bridge
and the Rose Quarter
TC. The extension then travels north along Interstate Avenue (hence Interstate MAX) to Kenton, then along the new Vanport Bridge
to the former Vanport
townsite, then terminating at the Expo Center
New Stations (South to North)
N Prescott St
N Killingsworth St
N Portland Blvd
Kenton/N Denver Ave
The MAX Yellow Line is planned to run over the new extension and over Eastside MAX from the Rose Quarter to downtown Portland.
Interstate MAX is not the same thing as the Yellow Line. Interstate MAX is the physical extension of the light rail system. The Yellow Line is the name of the route that will travel on it (and on other tracks). In the future, different lines could run on these same tracks.
