From Tualatin and Sherwood to Tigard and Southwest Portland, more people are choosing to live, work and play in the Southwest Corridor. The Southwest Corridor Plan was a comprehensive vision for the investments needed to keep this area moving and support the people who live here as the area grows.
Metro created an Equitable Development Strategy with local partners to explore how a proposed light rail and other investments can support community development and improve the quality of life for people of all incomes and backgrounds. To learn more about the Equitable Development Strategy and related ongoing work, see the Southwest Corridor Equitable Development Strategy page.
Voters did not approve Measure 26-218, which would have funded multiple transportation improvements in the region, including the proposed MAX Light Rail line in the Southwest Corridor. As a result, design work on the project is on pause. In the meantime, Metro, TriMet and the Federal Transit Administration continued working to complete the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), which was made available in January 2022.

See the TriMet project website for more details on the light rail project design.
