How Do We Know It’s Affordable?

 

UNDERSTANDING THE FULL COST OF HOUSING + TRANSPORTATION AND HOW THE LIGHT RAIL CAN HELP IN THE SOUTH CENTRAL CORRIDOR

The transit-oriented development plan will result in a document outlining/defining the recommended use of the land within the boundary area around the South Central Light Rail Extension. The plan will build upon the work and plans previously created by the City of Phoenix and various neighborhood organizations, the plan will document the community’s vision of the physical features desired around station stops and beyond, document areas for infrastructure improvements, offer recommendations for enhanced economic development opportunities and outline the connection of pedestrians, cyclists, automobiles, buses and the light rail.

What is the South Central Extension?

 

The South Central Light Rail Extension will connect with the current light rail system in downtown Phoenix, and operate south to Baseline Road. The project includes a transit hub in downtown Phoenix. The 5.5.-mile expansion adds nine new stations, track and art elements.

 

In January 2016, the Phoenix City Council approved advancing the opening date of the South Central Light Rail Extension from 2034 to 2023. The advancement is funded through Transportation 2050, a 35-year, multi-modal transportation plan approved by Phoenix voters in August 2015.
