Phase II of the Northwest Extension will extend light rail west on Dunlap Avenue from 19th Avenue, north on 25th Avenue and across I-17 with a terminus near Metrocenter Mall. 

 

The initial design plans are advancing with community input. Crews are also evaluating and locating underground utilities and conducting various infrastructure inspections. Find out more about the process to locate the necessary underground utilities and why it's a critical step in the design phase, here

Coming up!

A public meeting will be held Thursday, August 8, 2019 from 6-7:30 p.m. in Suite 1108 inside Metrocenter Mall. The meeting space is located closest to the northwest mall entrance, in the area of Wells Fargo Bank. The purpose of the meeting is to update the public on the project including the current design, environmental and historic resources, and various public art elements along the extension. You will be able to speak one-on-one with the artists and project staff, view the latest art design and provide feedback.

 

In 2004, the Phoenix City Council approved the Northwest Extension to extend light rail from 19th Ave/Montebello to 25th Ave. and Mountain View Rd. In 2007, the route was divided into two phases. The 3.2-mile Phase I on 19th Ave. from Montebello to Dunlap Ave. opened on March 19, 2016.

In 2016, the Phoenix City Council approved accelerating segments of the future high-capacity/light rail transit system. With the acceleration, Northwest Phase II will open in 2023 rather than 2026. The advancement is funded by Transportation 2050, a 35-year, multi-modal transportation plan approved by the Phoenix voters in 2015. Learn more about T2050 here.
