TriMet plans detours at Clackamas Town Center on heavy shopping days
TriMet will detour buses to temporary stops at the Clackamas Town Center to avoid anticipated congestion on Black Friday and other busy holiday shopping days.
Congestion at the center delayed some buses up to two hours in previous years. Such delays were avoided when TriMet used the temporary stops last year.
The stops will be located along Monterey Avenue, a short walk from the normal Clackamas Transit Center stops, which will be closed when the detour is in effect.
The affected lines are 28, 29, 30, 31, 71, 72, 79, 152, 155 and 156.
The detour will be in effect from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the following days:
Friday, Nov. 29.
Friday to Sunday, Dec. 13, 14, 15.
Friday to Tuesday, Dec. 20, 21, 22, 23, 24.
Thursday, Dec. 26.
TriMet advises riders to plan ahead.
