Portland's MAX commuter train is coming to my neighborhood. Only two blocks from my home, the construction that is going on has been amazing (and disrupting). This new line connects my neighborhood with downtown Portland, and then onto other neighborhoods as well as the airport. It's one VERY pricey project, needless to say, but I suspect that it'll be great for our area in so many ways, and certainly good for our property values. The completion and "first run" should happen in Sept. 2015. While walking my dog this afternoon, I captured a few photos of some of the work in this immediate area...most of it being elevated track. Our neighborhood is scheduled to be virtually closed down this weekend while one of new bridges is hoisted into place over the highway.
