The Operations and Maintence Center (OMC) expansion is needed to accommodate more vehicles with future rail system expansion. Construction for additional space will include expanding various maintenance buildings, adding five new storage tracks and adding new service and cleaning facilities. The expansion will allow the OMC to operate and maintain a fleet of approximately 90 vehicles; currently the facility can operate and maintain 50 vehicles.

Construction will be phased to ensure operations and maintenance of the current light rail system is unaffected.

Construction is underway for:

  • Completing earth retaining wall on north side of facility for extra light rail vehicle storage.
  • Erecting steel for Maintenance of Equipment building expansion.
  • Continuing foundation work for Maintenance of Way building expansion.
  • Renovating existing Maintenance of Equipment building office and shop space.
  • Constructing clearing platform with new sanding system.
  • Installing special track work.

Coordination with stakeholders about construction impacts continues.

The Valley Metro Operations and Maintenance Center (OMC) opened in 2006 to store and maintain a fleet of 50 light rail vehicles. The light rail vehicles are used to operate the current 28-mile Valley Metro rail system. With expansion to a 66-mile system by 2034, new vehicles will be added to the fleet and additional space is needed at the OMC to property operate and maintain them.
