A new light rail extension to connect South Phoenix communities to education, work and nightlife downtown is advancing forward with a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

Slated for completion in 2024, the connection will add 5 miles of light rail to connect residents to the city’s core as well as to the rest of the regional light rail system.

Currently, the Valley’s 28-mile rail line is also spurring economic development and jobs, including $14.4 billion in public and private investment since its inception in 2008, according to Valley Metro Regional Public Transportation Authority, more popularly known as Valley Metro.
