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.
Positioned south of Pacific Hwy/99W, the 68th Parkway Station’s prominent presence atop a natural amphitheater above Red Rock Creek provides views over the Red Rock Creek watershed. The station acts as the gateway into the burgeoning Tigard Triangle neighborhood. Sidewalk improvements and improved pedestrian crossings on Pacific Hwy/99W at SW 68th Pkwy and SW 64th Ave connect the station to the residential areas to the north. Adjacent bus stops and a surface Park & Ride with up to 350 spaces will make it a quick and easy transfer point for people coming from King City, Sherwood and other communities southwest of Tigard.
