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.

Outer Portland:
13th Avenue Station

13th Avenue Station is located on the east side of the West Hills and is the gateway to the SW Barbur Blvd commercial corridor. Adjacent to a Fred Meyer store and between the South Burlingame and Hillsdale neighborhoods, it is the closest station to Hillsdale Town Center and the SW Terwilliger Blvd crossing of I-5. It serves as a key connection point for people walking, biking, driving and taking buses traveling toward Downtown Portland, Tigard and Tualatin.
