Phoenix

The first new station along the existing Valley Metro Rail system will serve the communities and future development near 50th and Washington streets. The station will provide access to the Ability360 facility and neighboring business community, as well as support transit-oriented development planned for the area.

Construction on the 50th Street light rail station is currently taking place on the southside of Washington Street.

  • The installation of new retaining walls and underground work continues in advance of roadway widening. 
  • The removal of retaining walls, sidewalks and landscaping is ongoing to prepare for new underground utilities.
  • Utility relocation of the high pressure gas main line is complete.
  • Utility relocation will continue through mid-2018 with roadway widening taking place mid-2018 to early 2019.

The 50th Street light rail station is the first new station along the existing Valley Metro Rail system. The station will be a model of increased accessibility with design elements incorporated as a result of the PHX Innovation Games challenge issued by the City of Phoenix Mayor’s Office. The station designer is working with Innovation Games winner, Dig Studio, on station access, aesthetics and station entry areas.

The 50th Street Station is the first light rail project slated under Phoenix Transportation 2050 (T2050).
