Phoenix begins construction of northwest LRT extension


- The new section, which is planned to open in early 2024, will extend services from 19th Avenue/Dunlap across the I-17 Interstate highway to a new terminus near the old Metrocenter Mall. It follows the 2km Phase 1 extension between Montebello and Dunlap Avenue, which opened in March 2016. The extension will have three new stations, including an interchange at the Metrocenter with five bus routes. In addition, the project will include the planting of 200 trees and the installation of seven public artworks. The extension is expected to offer redevelopment opportunities and economic stimulus for the city’s northwest, following the closure of the Metrocenter Mall in June.
