Weird TriMet service alerts

NOTE: Many of these alerts were written by dispatchers who are not expected to be language experts, may not have time to proofread, and make mistakes like all humans.  They may have many other tasks in progress at the moment, such as dealing with buses that are already stuck due to the blockage or situations elsewhere.  While the errors probably should be forgiven, they can cause confusion or problems for those who try to follow them.

#88 Line 88 to Beaverton Transit Center:Regular route to Lombard and Canyon, right Farmington, left 217th north entrance, exit Canyon Road, left Canyon, right Lombard and regular route.
[How do you turn onto Farmington at Lombard and Canyon? Also, it should really be "right Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy" as Farmington ends at Lombard, and not "exit Canyon Road" as the Beaverton-Hillsdale ramp goes directly to Canyon and not directly onto the highway]

#52 Line 52 the stop at Farmington and Murray to Beaverton Transit Center is NOT to be serviced during this detour Thank you.

#21 Line 21 to Gresham: Regular route to Sandy and 122nd then right 122nd, left Halsey, right Sandy and regular route until further notice.
#21 Line 21 to Parkrose: Regular route to Sandy and 144th then left 144th, right Halsey, right 122nd, left Sandy and regular route until further notice.

#21 Line 21 to Gresham: Regular route to Sandy and 121st then right 121st, left Halsey, left 148th, right Sandy and regular route until further notice.

#9 Line 9 Caution at 17th and Powell outbound Eastbound due to rollover on the Westbound side.
[I would think that the concrete divider through the area would keep it to one side but maybe not]

#9 Line 9 to Portland: Regular route to Powell and Freeway then right Freeway to Division St, left Division, left 82nd, right Powell and regular route. until further notice.
[It seems "I-205" would be better than "Freeway"]

#11 Due to a blocking accident, Line 11 is disrupted in the area of N. Lombard and Ramsey. Trips from Middlefield Rd will turn around at the blockage and return to Middlefield Rd. Trips from St. Johns will travel to Oregon Steel Mill then return to St. Johns until N. Lombard clears. No service to stops in the area of the blockage on N Lombard at Ramsey and at 13200 N. Lombard.

[can't turn on A after continuing past A]

#36 Line 36 to Tualatin P and right : Regular route to State and B continue State, right A, right 5th, right B, right 4th and regular route.
[not sure it should have been given out because at the time (morning) Line 36 would have been starting in Lake Oswego and not be affected]

#154 Line 154 back to regular route Blankenship area.
[this was sent on a Saturday when Line 154 doesn't run]

#21 Line 21 to Parkrose Regular route to Sandy and 12st Place then left 121st Place, right Prescott, right 112th, left Sandy and regular route. Until clear of police action.
