Airport Improvement Spotlights the Phoenix Sky Harbor Stage 2 Extension
The PHX Sky Train® Extension at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport creates a more accessible, convenient, and sustainable travel experience for passengers making their way to the airport. The extension decreases drive and wait times for rental car customers, reduces greenhouse gases by removing all buses from airport roadways, among other featured amenities.
Kimley-Horn provided civil, structural, and electrical engineering for stage 2, prioritizing traveler impact in the design for the new train guideway, which required the relocation of the commercial ground transportation staging lots for taxis, Uber/Lyft, and shuttles.
These changes are expected to provide a better overall experience for travelers and allow for continued expansion in the future. The upcoming final stage will focus on full operation of systems ahead of the NFL’s Big Game in 2023, hosted by Phoenix.
