On June 20, 2018 the Phoenix City Council approved a motion directing:
“Staff and Valley Metro to provide an alternative right-of-way design of the South Central rail extension with 4-vehicular through lanes to the full extent possible within the federally-approved environmental footprint,
to begin a full comprehensive business and community engagement process facilitated by an independent facilitator to specifically discuss the full impacts, costs and benefits of the 4-lane design."
While work will continue on the federal process and approved design, Valley Metro also is developing a 4-lane design within the federally-approved environmental footprint for a complete discussion with the community. We’ll share the project history and the 2- and 4-lane designs through a mix of public meetings and other approaches oriented to the needs of South Central residents and businesses.
