The Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Transit Project library contains documents that cover initial planning and general information about the alignment and station areas, potential design, estimated ridership and more.
Bike and Pedestrian Improvements
Transit ridership depends on safe and efficient access to station areas. The Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Transit Project worked with community members and advocates to maximize station access, and include many bicycle and pedestrian facility improvements and additions that make connecting to station areas easier.
Utilizing $65 million, the project is building:
- approximately 10.3 miles of new or replaced sidewalks
- approximately 7.8 miles of new or replaced bicycle facility improvements
- 446 bike parking spaces, including two secure Bike & Rides
These maps show the many bicycle and pedestrian facilities built by the project and its partners. Here are the first four maps, with more for SE Portland, Milwaukie and Clackamas County to follow in the coming months.

Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement
The project not only provides environmental mitigation along the alignment, but also is actively working with partners to include sustainable elements and improve habitat.
