Bohnett Park in Santa Barbara is scheduled to close beginning Thursday, Oct. 15 for construction of a park improvement and storm water treatment project.

Some Gresham MAX stops to close starting Sunday

The Blue Line Improvement Project is nearing completion, but the final steps require a week-long closure of five Gresham stations.

GRESHAM, Ore. — Heads up for riders of the MAX Blue Line: TriMet is finishing some upgrades to the east end of the line in Gresham, starting this weekend. Part of the work involves rebuilding the only wooden trestle bridge in the entire MAX System.

The nearly year-long Gresham Max Improvement Project is in the home stretch, but that means there’s a week of station closures and shuttle-bus detours for riders who typically use stops from Ruby Junction to Cleveland Avenue — that’s the east end of the Blue Line.

Off-leash dog park in Cherry Creek State Park to close temporarily

The popular off-leash dog area in Cherry Creek State Park will close temporarily for four days in early October for maintenance and improvements.

The area, which sees over one-million visits by people and their pets annually, will be closed from Oct. 5 through Oct. 8, according to a news release. The same area was closed in October last year for upgrading. State park staff, contractors and volunteers will work on trails, improved access to the site and recovery of natural resources.

Improvements this year will include two new pedestrian access points from the parking
