Construction progress continues on the West Valley TRAX Line. To keep business and traffic impacts to a minimum, this 5-mile project has been separated into seven construction “reaches,” or segments, for management and planning purposes. The map below shows each construction reach in a different color, starting with Reach 1 in light green on the south end of the project and ending with Reach 7 in dark green on the north end.
Currently, construction is taking place in all reaches.
