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:
19th Avenue Station

19th Avenue Station is nested within a neighborhood serving the commercial area located at the intersection of SW Capitol Hill Rd, SW 19th Ave and SW Barbur Blvd. The SW 19th Ave and SW Spring Garden St overcrossings of I-5 provide convenient multimodal access from the station to the South Burlingame neighborhood east of I-5. The station is adjacent to a recently remodeled Safeway store and is one of two stations within close proximity to Multnomah Village. A number of schools, housing and parks are clustered near this station.
