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 Hamilton Street Station is located near the South Portland community hub, between SW Bancroft St and SW Hamilton St. Safer, easier pedestrian connections across SW Barbur Blvd will help link the Homestead neighborhood uphill and the South Portland neighborhood downhill. The station will serve as a major transfer point for local bus lines.
