Rail Arrives on the Gilbert Road Extension
Crew are welding rail on the Gilbert Road light rail extension, in preparation of track installation. The 80-foot rail "sticks" are being welded together into 400-foot "strings" on Main Street in Mesa. The Gilbert Road Extension will extend light rail on Main Street from Mesa Drive to Gilbert Road in Mesa. At Gilbert Road, there are significant transit connections and the ability to serve the growing transit demand in the East Valley. The extension will open in 2019.
