After months of debate and uncertainty, Phoenix will move forward with the controversial light-rail extension in south Phoenix.

Community concern over the proposed 5.5-mile, light rail project — planned for Central Avenue between Washington Street and Baseline Road — erupted in early 2018 when a group dubbed “4 Lanes or No Train” sprouted in south Phoenix.

The group said it was concerned that the project, which is set to whittle Central Avenue down to two lanes, will bottleneck traffic and kill businesses.
