TriMet Light Rail Station System Improvement Project

TriMet’s MAX Light Rail system connects Portland, Gresham, Beaverton, Hillsboro and the Portland Airport. As a part of TriMet’s commitment to build and maintain a safe transit system, GreenWorks is assisting the agency in reviewing its existing lighting and access control design standards for the MAX stations. The overall goal is to create a safe and secure system of transportation for its patrons. Initially, this process will review, analyze, design, and implement prototype improvements to the existing lighting systems and access control at two eastside LRT platforms, both located on the TriMet Blue Line the stations of 82nd Avenue and Gresham Central. Design illumination and access control improvements will complement the existing architectural character of these two platforms. The improvements will be completed in coordination with internal and external stakeholders, and TriMet’s leadership review board. GreenWorks provided documentation of the site review of the two stations and a report including mapping of existing site conditions, an inventory of site elements, mapping of site opportunities and site constraints, an illumination assessment and light readings from the two stations. Building on this field research, our work included schematic design and construction documents. After implementation, our services will include a post occupancy analysis to inform the design analysis and may contribute to the modification of the TriMet Design Criteria.
