Phoenix

Phase II of the Northwest Extension will extend light rail west on Dunlap Avenue from 19th Avenue, north on 25th Avenue and across I-17 with a terminus near Metrocenter Mall. 

 

Valley Metro and the city of Phoenix invited the community to an open house on Thursday, October 4, to get an update on the project. Information on the project’s Environmental Assessment (EA) will be shared. The EA details the level of potential impacts the project will have on noise, vibration, traffic, and parking, as well as recreational and historic resources. The open house was held at College America Auditorium, 9801 N. Metro Parkway E., Phoenix.

Northwest phase 2 artist meet and greet.

In 2004, the Phoenix City Council approved the Northwest Extension to extend light rail from 19th Ave/Montebello to 25th Ave. and Mountain View Rd. In 2007, the route was divided into two phases. The 3.2-mile Phase I on 19th Ave. from Montebello to Dunlap Ave. opened on March 19, 2016.

In 2016, the Phoenix City Council approved accelerating segments of the future high-capacity/light rail transit system. With the acceleration, Northwest Phase II will open in 2023 rather than 2026. The advancement is funded by Transportation 2050, a 35-year, multi-modal transportation plan approved by the Phoenix voters in 2015. Learn more about T2050 here.
