*As public works construction is identified as an essential service by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey during the COVID-19 pandemic, the NWEII project is finalizing design with construction planned to begin in August 2020. The project team and construction crews will adhere to current guidelines about health and safety protocols, with the health and safety of community members, the traveling public and construction workers as a top priority.*

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. 

 

The project design is now complete. The project team is now working on the engineering plans, which are an integral part of the process leading up to construction.

Crews continue to evaluate and locate underground utilities and conduct various infrastructure inspections. Find out more about the process to locate the necessary underground utilities and why it's a critical step in the design phase, here.

It is anticipated construction will begin in August 2020.

 

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.
