Vancouver Light Rail Alignment Open Houses
The City of Vancouver, C-TRAN and the
Columbia River Crossing project held two
open houses in February to provide local
residents, property owners and businesses
with updated information about the proposed
light rail route in Vancouver.
The open houses featured information about
the light rail route, benefits to the
community, and effects to properties along
the route. CRC, the City of Vancouver and
C-TRAN are working to ensure that the light
rail system helps support the community’s
vision for downtown development.
of the CRC project, Portland’s 52-mile
regional MAX system will be extended 2.9
miles to Clark College in Vancouver.
Currently, trains are expected to travel
north on Broadway and south on Washington.
Project planners are studying two options
for east-west travel on one street:
McLoughlin Boulevard or 17th Street.
