Study to evaluate the feasibility of adding a light rail station at 16th Street & Washington Street.

Valley Metro, in coordination with the city of Phoenix, has initiated a 12-18 month study evaluating the feasibility of adding light rail station on Washington Street in the vicinity of 16th Street. Light rail stations currently located along Washington Street are at 3rd, 12th, 24th, 38th, and 44th streets, Priest Drive and Center Parkway.

Following the opening of the 20-mile light rail line, Valley Metro developed a Station Addition Policy that outlines the process and criteria for adding new stations to the existing service. The process includes a two-phase approach to evaluate potential station location options. The first phase identifies factors such as potential ridership, costs, funding and constructability. If it is determined that a station location option is feasible following the preliminary assessment, then a detailed evaluation will occur. If the study results indicate that it is not feasible to construct an additional station then alternative options for increased mobility to the study area will be recommended.
