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.
The Shared Investment Strategy, adopted in 2013 by the project Steering Committee, recommended constructing roadway, bike and pedestrian projects. These station access projects are not in the current project budget but could be designed and built by the project if other funding sources are secured.
There are currently 23 station access projects identified in the City of Portland. Projects will be prioritized using public input as well as criteria including safety, equity, proximity and access.
Project numbers correspond to identification in the Environmental Impact Statement.
