The Federal Transit Administration has given their approval to the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Portland to Milwaukie Light Rail Project.
This is a major milestone for the project. TriMet will now enter the Final Design phase. Construction is scheduled to start next year and passenger rail service is planned to begin in the Fall of 2015.
More details will be announced at the October Citizens Advisory Committee Meeting. This month’s meeting will be held at 6:00 PM on Wednesday the 27th. This meeting is open to the public and will be held at the TriMet Training Center located at the corner of SE 17th Avenue and Holgate.
