Bridge Approach

The bridge over Tempe Town Lake is just ahead in this view.  Once across the water, the route turns generally west for the many miles into downtown Phoenix. 

The line runs close to north of Sky Harbor International Airport, beyond its northern edge.  There is a dedicated bus shuttle between the servicing light rail station and the passenger terminals.  Some day a people mover may make for more elegant access to the airport.  Light rail was constructed with this in mind, and the short bit of the future proposed structure was built at that station.
