The South Central Light Rail Extension will connect with the current light rail system in downtown Phoenix and operate south to Baseline Road. 

 

The South Central Extension is in the initial design phase.

  • Starting Monday, May 28, Valley Metro will survey the South Central Extension to identify locations of underground utilities. Surveying will cover the entire light rail alignment from Baseline Road to the downtown area with an expected ending period in early 2019. 
  • There are current job openings to join the South Central Extension team. To learn more about the available positions, click here. 

Upcoming 

  • The city of Phoenix, in partnership with Valley Metro, will launch an early action business assistance program in spring 2018. The program will provide additional resources to businesses to help them remain successful during construction.

Ribbon cutting at the South Central Extension Community Office

The South Central corridor is one of seven project areas identified by the U.S. Department of Transportation for inclusion in its Ladders of Opportunity Transportation Empowerment Pilot (LadderSTEP) program. The LadderSTEP Pilot program aims to build and restore connections, develop workforce capacity, and catalyze neighborhood revitalization through planned transportation projects.

In January 2016, the Phoenix City Council approved advancing the opening date of the South Central Light Rail Extension from 2034 to 2023. The advancement is funded through Transportation 2050 (T2050), a 35-year multi-modal transportation plan approved by Phoenix voters in August 2015. Click here to learn more about T2050.

 

South Central Extension project area

The South Central Extension Community Office is open at 5040 S. Central Ave, Phoenix.

Visitors are welcome during the following times:

  • Monday and Wednesday , 9 a.m.-1p.m.
  • Thursday, Noon-7 p.m.
  • 2nd Saturday of every month, 9 a.m.-noon

During office hours or by appointment, community members and business owners will be able to visit with project staff to ask questions and learn more about the extension, or get more information on upcoming business assistance programs. To make an appointment, call the office at 602-687-8585.

Valley Metro and the city of Phoenix opened the South Central Extension Community Office on Monday, February 26. Conveniently located along the future light rail extension, the office provides the community another way to connect with members of the project team.

“This is your office,” said Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton to the South Central Phoenix community at the ribbon cutting ceremony. “Any questions you have about this project just call or pop right in.” 

Valley Metro and city of Phoenix kept a strong focus on staying local when creating the office. The office space is leased by a local property owner, a local contractor completed the renovations, the furniture is from the furniture store next door, and the eye-catching exterior mural was created by a Phoenix artist.

“This truly is a partnership,” said Scott Smith, Valley Metro CEO. “Not just with Valley Metro and the city of Phoenix, but with the community.”
