About the Project
The Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project will create a light rail alignment that travels 7.3 miles, connecting Portland State University in downtown Portland, inner Southeast Portland, Milwaukie and north Clackamas County. The project itself will create up to 14,000 jobs and generate up to $573 million in personal earnings.
MAX service on the alignment is scheduled to begin in 2015. By 2030, this future light rail line will carry up to an average of 22,765 to 25,500 weekday rides, and there will be approximately 22,000 households and 85,000 employees within walking distance of Portland-Milwaukie light rail stations.
