Light rail station at 19th Avenue and Camelback.

Valley Metro Rail stations are getting a makeover! Over time everything needs a little sprucing up, so Valley Metro is repainting the metal at all rail stations across the next 2 – 3 years. The stations will sport the new color, monorail silver.

Starting Dec. 3, the 19th Ave/Camelback station will be the first of many to get a fresh coat of paint. Each station painting will take 4-6 weeks. For your safety and the safety of our workers, please be aware, do not touch any equipment or enter areas separated by a partition.

After 19th Ave/Camelback, the first few stations receiving new paint next year will be 19th Ave/Montebello, 7th Ave/Camelback and 44th St/Washington.

As the painting process happens, plants that are integrated into the stations will be removed. They will be replaced with new foliage, custom to the station’s heat and sun exposure, once the painting is complete. Trees and other plants not touching the metal areas will be covered and preserved when possible. In addition, certain station elements – including canopies, signage and/or screens – will be temporarily removed across different stages of the painting process.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work to keep our system in top-notch condition.
