TriMet has relocated the westbound bus stop at SE Powell Blvd. and Powell Garage Drive (Bus Line #9 Powell - Stop ID 4543). The passenger stop was relocated for public safety due to construction on the Portland Water Bureau’s new Kelly Butte reservoir. The new bus stop is located about one block east near SE Powell Blvd. and SE 99th Ave., and will stay in this temporary location until 2015.  Additional information on Bus Line #9 is available online.

The Portland Water Bureau began replacing the 10-million gallon above ground steel tank atop Kelly Butte in southeast Portland with a 25-million-gallon underground concrete reservoir in July 2012.  The new reservoir will be in the same general place, but will have a larger footprint. This project, and the new 50-million gallon reservoir now under construction at Powell Butte Nature Park, will allow the City of Portland to comply with federal safe drinking water requirements and reduce the seismic vulnerability of east side drinking water storage facilities.

The Kelly Butte Reservoir project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014. Process updates and photos are available on the Portland Water Bureau’s website.
