Construction on light rail and Tempe Streetcar

Due to construction work on Tempe Streetcar, all light rail trains will operate on a Sunday schedule on Monday, March 9, 2020.

From March 7-9 2020, construction crews will be working near the Dorsey/Apache rail station to install special trackwork that will allow a Tempe Streetcar vehicle to travel from the end of its route back to the Valley Metro Rail Operations and Maintenance Center. 

Map of the work area

To complete this construction work, Valley Metro light rail vehicles will utilize single-tracking. From the Dorsey/Apache station through the Smith-Martin/Apache station, both eastbound and westbound trains will alternate traveling along the westbound track to ensure the new special trackwork can be installed safely on the eastbound track.


We will keep you updated on our progress as we continue to enhance our system.
