Phoenix light rail project moves to next stage

Posted on August 13, 2010

The Federal Transit Administration approved Phoenix Metro's request to enter Project Development for the Central Mesa light rail extension. This marks the first step in receiving federal project approval and ultimately federal funds to build the 3.1-mile extension on Main Street from the current end-of-line at Sycamore, through downtown Mesa to Mesa Drive.

With this approval, preliminary engineering work can begin and will be conducted by Jacobs Engineering. Metro contracted with Jacobs for preliminary and final engineering that will collectively take approximately two years and be followed shortly by construction.

The project cost is estimated at $200 million and will be paid for using a mix of regional and federal funds and scheduled for completion in 2016.
