Phoenix breaks ground on airport Sky Train

Posted on March 27, 2009


U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood joined Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon and Phoenix City Council members to break ground on Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport's automated train  the PHX Sky Train.

Stage one of the PHX Sky Train will connect with METRO light rail and transport passengers and employees between 44th Street and Washington, East Economy Parking and Terminal 4. Stage one, which will be completed in 2013, is creating 5,900 jobs.

Mayor Gordon has been meeting with leaders in Washington, D.C., to discuss the acceleration of the PHX Sky Train construction to Terminals 3 and 2.  An additional $200 million in federal stimulus funding would create thousands of additional jobs and serve all three terminals at Sky Harbor seven years earlier than originally planned.

“We are grateful to our partners in Washington for recognizing the ongoing infrastructure needs at one of the nation’s ten busiest airports,” said Mayor Gordon.
