Design work on the Southwest Corridor Light Rail Project was paused in 2020 after voters rejected a local funding measure for multiple transportation improvements. In early 2022, Metro, TriMet and the Federal Transit Administration completed the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and issued a Record of Decision (ROD) to ensure the project is eligible for future federal funding. See Metro’s project website to access to these documents.
TriMet, Metro and other project partners began planning efforts on the Southwest Corridor Light Rail Project in 2009. From 2016-2020, TriMet and Metro worked on the preliminary design and environmental review phases of the project.

TriMet sought public comment on potential impacts to historic properties and parks resources. Some of these resources are eligible for protection under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act
