Well Connected, Abundant Resources and Reliable Power

GlobalMapMesa is a city on the move with an abundance of freeways, highways and state routes strategically located along commerce corridors and current and future population centers. Freeways ease traffic congestion-the 101 along Mesa's west border and the Loop 202 circling the interior of Mesa. US 60 and SR 87 intersect in Mesa and minutes away are Interstates 10, 17 and 8, plus state routes 51, 74, 85 and 88 linking Mesa to other Arizona markets, California and Mexico.

Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad operate rail terminals in Greater Phoenix. Both intermodal facilities offer trailer and container capabilities. Utility services, water and sewer services are excellent in the City of Mesa. Electricity and natural gas are available at levels necessary to support high-volume commercial users with prices equal to or below national averages.

Light Rail
The arrival of METRO Light Rail in late 2008 ushered in a new era of transportation to Greater Phoenix. The Mesa City Council helped to further define the light rail expansion from one mile in Downtown Mesa to an additional three miles, with approval of four station locations. The approved extension will begin construction in 2013 and be completed in 2016. View the Metro Light Rail Alignment Map.
