Feds give green light to next phase in Tempe Streetcar project




A Phoenix-area company received approval from the federal government to enter a new phase of construction on a streetcar project, it was announced Tuesday.

Valley Metro said in a press release that it was given the go-ahead from the Federal Transit Administration to begin the first phase of “significant construction” on the Tempe Streetcar.

The approval will allow the company to start building the system’s rail track, power systems and street improvements this fall.

“This milestone would not have been possible without the support of our federal delegation and officials at FTA, for which we are grateful,” Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell said in a press release.
