The Southwest Corridor Light Rail Project will connect Downtown Portland and Tualatin with a 30-minute travel time and bring high-capacity transit to one of the region’s most congested corridors.

The project is in the early design phase and recently released the preliminary conceptual designs through the Conceptual Design Report. It describes and illustrates the overall urban design vision as well as the conceptual designs for stations, major structures, and other key corridor improvements.

This online open house is an opportunity to explore some of the key information from the Conceptual Design Report. Review and submit feedback on as many stations and improvements as you want. The project team will use your feedback to inform a final report in mid-2020 and ongoing design efforts in the coming years. Construction on the light rail project could begin as early as 2022.

Station Access Projects

The Shared Investment Strategy adopted in 2013 by the project steering committee, recommended a narrow list of strategic roadway, bike and pedestrian projects to potentially construct. These station access projects are not in the current project budget, but could be designed and built by the project, if other funding sources are secured. You can review and help prioritize these station access projects on the following pages.
