PHOENIX — A five-mile light rail extension in South Phoenix will be the first to get a major boost from the area’s Transportation 2050 program, which will push the opening of the line by more than a decade to 2023, the Arizona Republic reports.

The $31.5 billion transportation plan passed by Phoenix voters last summer, raised sales taxes to fund bus, street and light-rail improvements through 2050. The Phoenix City Council recently approved a schedule that would push forward the opening of the south Phoenix line, with the changes expected to be adopted into the regional transit plan this summer.
