JCB Signal and Bus Service Updates

From Jennifer Koozer, TriMet Community Affairs Manager:

Hi Ardenwald-Johnson Creek friends,
I wanted to give you the latest on the 32nd & Johnson Creek Blvd intersection. We still don’t have a date for turning on the new traffic signals because we are now working through some technical issues with the pavement loops that will detect vehicles at the intersection to trigger the signals. Hoping to resolve within the next few weeks and get the signals turned on!
I also wanted to let you know that our bus operations folks are working through the details of the new bus service plan that will go into effect on September 13, including the new Line 34-Linwood/River Road route on Johnson Creek Boulevard. This route is the realigned Line 28-Linwood as proposed last summer/fall (map.) New maps and schedule details for bus and MAX will be available in late August. In the meantime, bus stop adjustments are being planned. This includes:
  • Establishing new Line 34 bus stops on Johnson Creek Blvd east of 45th Pl
  • Adding Line 34 to the existing Line 75 bus stops on Johnson Creek Blvd, but removing the pair of stops at 40th Ave, which are too closely spaced to the pair at 42nd Ave
  • Establishing a new pair of Line 34 stops on Johnson Creek Boulevard just east of 32nd Ave
Please contact my colleague, Michelle Wyffels (cc’d or at 503-962-2180) with any questions about bus stops.
Thanks again for your patience with construction, and do not hesitate with any questions.
