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 Bridgeport Transit Center will be more than just a light rail station. It will be an iconic mobility node and visible gateway to those traveling across the region. With a major Park & Ride, bus transfer center, direct access to I-5 and walkable connections to Bridgeport Village, the station will serve a wide range of communities in the southern metro area. Numerous potential development sites are adjacent to the Bridgeport Village commercial center. The area is set to become a new central hub of activity.
