Y2K Engineering had multiple supporting roles for the $700M undertaking of the extension of the existing PHX Sky Train, which currently operates between the 44th Street PHX Sky Train Station and terminals 3 and 2. When complete, this phase will extend the train 2.5 miles to the existing Phoenix Rental Car Center. Y2K supported the Prime in capturing requirements for and drafting Intergovernmental Agreements between Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and City of Phoenix Streets as well as City of Phoenix Aviation Departments.
Additionally, Y2K Engineering conducted a field inventory for select roadways and intersections on the west side of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to assess the condition and determine the usability of pedestrian routes by people with mobility impairments. The data collected was analyzed for compliance with the ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). The roadways included in the assessment are those proposed to have ownership and maintenance responsibility transfer from the City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department to the City of Phoenix Aviation Department for airport uses.
Furthermore, Y2K Engineering was requested to prepare a traffic analysis for the 24th Street/Buckeye Road and 24th Street/Sky Harbor Circle North intersections as part of the ground transportation staging lot relocation related to the Sky Train project. This relocation results in an increase of traffic volumes for certain movements at the 24th Street/Buckeye Road and 24th Street/Sky Harbor Circle North intersections.
