Valley Metro’s board last week awarded the Kiewit-McCarthy joint venture a $257.3 million contract to construct Phase II of the Northwest light-rail extension in Phoenix.
The project would extend light-rail 1.6 miles on Dunlap Avenue from 19th Avenue to a terminus on the west side of Interstate 17.
Utility relocation, the first stage of construction, is expected to begin in August, Valley Metro officials said in a press release.
The project is funded through Transportation 2050, a multimodal transportation plan approved by Phoenix voters, as well as regional transportation funds and a federal grant.
