Two area locations announced for information-gathering meetings


May 31, 2008   

METRO is seeking community input on potential routes and transit modes under evaluation in the agency’s Tempe South Alternatives Analysis. 

The Tempe South project study area is bounded by the Tempe Branch of the Union Pacific Railroad on the west, Loop 101 on the east, Route 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) on the north and Route 202 (Santan Freeway) on the south.

Since the first series of community meetings held in January, potential routes that provide connection to Tempe, Chandler and the 20-mile light rail starter line, have been further reviewed.  

Elements such as potential ridership, costs and environmental impacts continue to be studied in an effort to narrow in on the most cost effective solution to this corridor’s travel demand and transportation problems.

Public meetings are important opportunities for area residents and business owners to learn the latest project updates and to provide input that will help guide future study efforts.

Staff will be on-hand to present project updates and answer questions.

The meeting dates and locations are: 

Tuesday, June 10, 6 – 8 p.m., Tempe Public Library, 3500 S. Rural Rd., Tempe

Wednesday, June 11, 6 – 8 p.m., Corona del Sol High School, 1001 E. Knox Road, Tempe

Opportunities for public involvement will occur throughout the project development process. Those unable to attend the meetings may send their comments to Pamela Cecere at (602) 385-1622 or

Meetings are held in buildings that are accessible to persons with disabilities. Any individual who requires special assistance should also contact Pamela Cecere at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting.
