Phoenix light rail cars will not be running north of McDowell tomorrow morning due to the P.F. Changs Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. I wanted to remind people and let you know that the following stations will be shut down until approximately 10:00 a.m. or until the race has cleared.
· 19th Avenue/Camelback Road
· 7th Avenue/Camelback Road
· Central Avenue/Camelback
· Campbell/Central Avenue
· Osborn/Central Avenue
· Thomas/Central Avenue
· Encanto/Central Avenue
Light rail will run in parts of Phoenix and will operate in Tempe and in Mesa– from McDowell/Central Avenue to Main/Sycamore – with regular service hours and will have additional trains and frequencies to support event demands. METRO will offer 10-minute service before and during the race when traditional weekend frequency is every 15 minutes.
The entire line will re-open once police have indicated the marathon has cleared and it’s safe to proceed, approximately 10 a.m.
There will also be several changes made to bus routes. We mentioned light rail and bus service changes recently but wanted to remind people of the big changes to the light rail line for this Sunday.
Sunday promises to be a big sports day around here with the marathon and with the big Cardinals game. It will be fun to ride the light rail to a great spot along the line to cheer on the Red Birds.
Yep, Arizona… "Your Life Is On The Line!"
