Traffic and congestion are the top concerns of Tigard residents, according to municipal surveys. But next March, city voters will be asked to apply the brakes to the solution being prepared by regional leaders — a new high capacity transit corridor between Portland and Tualatin.

The transit corridor has won support from the Washington County Commission and most cities within the county, including Beaverton and Sherwood.

If approved, Ballot Measure 34-210 would make a point of opposing new high-capacity corridor projects in Tigard. It was placed on the March 11 special election ballot by activists opposed to the “Southwest Corridor Project,” a transportation planning process currently being overseen by Metro, the elected regional government.
