Overview of the Portland - Milwaukie Light Rail alignment and features

The Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project would construct a new 6.5-mile light rail line extending from Portland’s downtown transit mall at Southwest Jackson Street to a southern terminus at either Southeast Lake Road in Milwaukie or Southeast Park Avenue near Oak Grove. The line would include 11 to 13 new light rail stations and three to four new park and ride facilities with up to 2,600 new parking spaces. The line would also include a new bike, pedestrian and rail transit bridge across the Willamette River between the Marquam and Ross Island bridges.

The project is expected to serve an estimated 20,000 daily riders and will provide connections to the downtown transit mall, PSU, Riverplace and the South Waterfront, OHSU, the central eastside and OMSI, Southeast Portland, and Milwaukie.

An overview of the project alignment and detailed maps of each segment of the project are available below.
