Rising Right of Way

The opening of the line in 2009 brought MAX light rail to Clackamas County for the first time.  The three counties served by MAX are Multnomah (home to the entire original line from Portland to Gresham); Washington, to the west of Portland; and Clackamas, to the south.  Multnomah is both the smallest and the most populous county in the state.  Clackamas is expansive, and includes beautiful Mt. Hood. 

North of the terminal at Clackamas Town Center, as pictured in this image, the Green Line rises to cross over major roadways below.
