Bug TriMet About Something Else
Enough already with the Transit Mall Stuff.
TriMet is holding several open houses on its Transit Improvement Plan (TIP), essentially its capital investment plan.
The open houses are:
Wednesday, March 15th, 11-2 and 4-7 in the Portland Bldg (2nd floor)
Tuesday, March 21st, 4-7pm at the Portland Adventist Academy (1500 SE 96th Avenue, Portland)
Wednesday, March 22nd, 4-7pm at the Beaverton Community Center (12350 SW Fifth Street, Beaverton)

I think the focus of these Open Houses is on the bus service options during Mall construction.
I was wondering if Mall construction couldn't all be staged... North Mall, Central Mall, then South Mall...with buses coming back sooner once construction on a given segment is done. I'll mention it today. Stacey & Widbeck, the contractor, did a great job on both Interstate MAX and Streetcar in minimizing impacts via staged contruction. When I saw their plan for Interstate MAX, I knew it was a winner, and they delivered.

I went to the afternoon meeting yesterday and while these meetings are an annual event, the mall project definitely overshadowed other things, like I-205.
