WASHINGTON – The Federal Transit Administration this week recommended $20 million in funding for construction of a 3.1-mile extension of Arizona’s Central Mesa Light Rail line connecting Phoenix and Mesa. The request was included in President Obama’s fiscal year 2013 budget. The existing Phoenix light rail line opened in 2008.

The extension is intended to provide a transfer-free connection between the existing Phoenix line terminal at Sycamore Street and the downtown Mesa central business district. The extension would include four new stations.

The recommendation is part of the FTA’s Annual Report on Funding Recommendations for Fiscal Year 2013.
