Design of Central Mesa Light Rail Extension Underway

The 3.1-mile Central Mesa light rail extension has completed 30% design.  Preliminary roadway design and station art and architecture concepts have been developed for the light rail extension that will travel east from the Sycamore end-of-line, through downtown Mesa to Mesa Drive by 2016.

To view the presentation from the 30% design review public meeting, visit  Public comment is always welcome.

METRO will return to the community for the 60% design review public meeting in fall 2011.  With every design milestone, METRO will seek community input.  Public input is critical during the early phases of design as it can have direct impact on the final product.
