PHX Sky Train Guideway and Maintenance & Operations Facility


Phoenix, AZ

Weitz was selected as the general contractor for Phase 1 and 1A of the dual lane guideway for the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s automated train system called PHX Sky Train. The project scope of Phase 1 included concrete for 3.2 miles of running surfaces, steel guide beam for guidance and all electrical work necessary for the operation of the automated train system. Phase 1A was awarded to Weitz under a design-build contract to complete the train systems from Terminal 4 to Terminal 3. This included an additional 1.2 miles of guideway.

Weitz also completed a maintenance and operations facility, including the control center for the train systems and operations; administrative offices; maintenance area for light- and heavy-duty work on the 18 train cars; and the main power supply.

“In my 34 years with Bombardier, I have never seen a better civil job than what The Weitz Company did here in Phoenix. It was truly a pleasure to work with your team … for me it was more of a partnership than just business. I feel I have made some friends from Weitz for life.”
