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 those errors probably should be forgiven, they can cause confusion or problems for those who try to follow them.

17th and Ellis. Regular route!
#28 line 28. Regular route to Harrison and Hwy 224, left Hwy 224, right Monroe,
left 21st to Harrison and regular route until further notice.
[should be "right 21st"]

regular route. Due to low wire.
[missing "left 27th" after "right Knapp"]
#70 LINE 70: the inbound stops at 32nd & 30th are closed PERMANENTLY.
Passengers can board stop before or after.
[which way is inbound on a cross-town line, and if it's referring to the stops on Broadway (the only ones that would make sense) it would also affect Line 77]
#4 Line 4 to Gresham: Regular route right at Kilpatrick and Brandon, Flaggers
will flag you through, one lane is open, use caution when going through.

[Winchell doesn't go through to Wabash]

Everett & 5th and the Rose Quarter Transit Center.

#75 Line 75 to St Johns: Regular route to 42nd and Lombard then veer left 42nd
to Lombard, left Lombard, left 33rd and regular route until further notice.
["42nd and Lombard" should really be "42nd and Holman" because you're not at Lombard there, and "left 33rd" should really be "left ramp to 33rd, cross 33rd into Dekum"]

left 32nd, right Lombard, veer right onto 42nd and regular route until further

#31 #75 Lines 31,75 to Milwaukie Regular route to 24th and Harrison then right
Harrison, left 17th into right Harrison and regular route.
[this makes no sense; 24th is a side street that goes just over one block]
#15 #51 Lines 15 & 51. Due to construction at Washington and 4th, you will
need to get the attention of the flagger and he will flag you thru. Bus only.

#4 Line 4 Westbound regular route to St. Johns: via Killingsworth at Brandon to
Delaware. left Argyle St. left DELAWARE right WILLIS left BURRAGE right
ARLINGTON right Peninsular and Regular route.

entrance to the 10-minute parking area at Beaverton Transit Center will be

right Mason, right 148th, left Airport Way, & Regular route To Rockwood:
Regular route to 148th and Airport Way, right 148th, left Mason, left 158th,

148th and Airport Way, right 148th, left Mason, left 158th, right Airport Way
& Regular route UNTIL: accident cleared.
[I'm wondering if it was forgotten that buses normally turn left onto 148th to make a deviation to PHC]

X-Mcloughlin to left Main, left Harrison & Regular route Northbound: Regular
route to Main and Harrison, right Main, left Milport X-Mcloughlin, right 17th

Portland will not serve stops on N Interstate due to the Bridge to Brews race.
Use Line 4 stop on NE Wheeler at Multnomah (Stop ID 1097).
[So is Line 35 going to serve a stop that's closed for Line 4? Or does "NE Multnomah & Wheeler" for Line 4 really mean the Rose Quarter TC stop that's right before the intersection? Also, why does it say "5th/6th" when one direction is given?]
#17 Sunday April 12, from 8 a.m. until 11:30 a.m., no service to stops between
NW Broadway & Pine and NE Broadway & Glisan due to the Bridge to Brews

Sklidmore, to 27th and regular route Reverse outbound as needed due to
[Prescott does not lead to Skidmore]

[A mechanical train?]
#9 No service to eastbound stops on SE Powell between 50th / Foster and 82nd,
due to a traffic accident at 55th.
[can't find a better detour that bypasses less stops?]
