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.
Sitting at the intersection of a dense mixed-use center and regional employment hub, Hall Boulevard Station is a critical node for the project. To emphasize bus and WES Commuter Rail transfers, the SW Commercial St transit corridor will be designed for pedestrian comfort and integrate the station into Downtown Tigard. Design elements include bus shelters, landscaping, pavement treatments and wayfinding. Similar pedestrian and bicycle improvements along SW Hall Blvd and SW Hunziker St will help continue to make Tigard one of the most walkable cities in the region.
