South Central Extension/Downtown Hub: Construction Advisory Boards

A key component of Valley Metro’s Construction Outreach Plan for the South Central Extension/Downtown Hub (SCE/DH) project is the formation of a citizen advisory board to serve as a voice for the affected community during light rail construction. The board is known as the Construction Advisory Board (CAB) and is composed of residents, property owners and business representatives from the community adjacent to the project route.

CAB members will serve as liaisons between the SCE/DH light rail project contractor and the community, and evaluate the performance of Valley Metro’s contractor in minimizing impacts to the community during construction. CAB members will make recommendations to Valley Metro whether to award a quarterly incentive to the contractor, related to public outreach, response to issues, traffic management and property restoration.

There will be two CABs for the SCE/DH project representing the following areas:

  • North: McKinley Street to Victory Street
  • South: Victory Street to Baseline Road

The North CAB meets on the third Thursday of the month at 1 p.m. The South CAB meetings will begin later this summer. Dates and times are subject to change. Please consult Valley Metro’s events calendar to confirm meeting dates, times and locations.
