- Clackamas County is considering closing (for now) the Canby Ferry.

- TriMet’s recent cracking down on fare cheats is showing some results, according to the agency.
- More public outreach for the SW Corridor project. Tigard is having a meeting tonight.
- couv.com revisits architect Kevin Peterson’s alternate proposal for the CRC.
