Parametrix led preliminary design of A Better Red and will serve as prime consultant for the final design. The project team includes David Evans & Associates, Emerio Design, LTK, Shannon & Wilson, and Perkins + Will, among several other subconsultants. Final design will be delivered in 2021 with construction from 2021–2023.
In addition to increasing reliability, the project aims to improve ridership by extending the Red Line further west from Beaverton Transit Center to Fair Complex Station.
Work on the west side will include replacing track, powering existing switches, as well as placing an operator break facility at the Fair Complex/Hillsboro Airport MAX Station.
On the east side, a new Red Line inbound station will be constructed at Gateway/Northeast 99th Avenue Transit Center. A new structure will span over I-84, servicing passengers on a new second track between Gateway and the airport.
