The blue line to Cosumnes River College (CRC) light rail extension, also known as the south line phase 2 project, was built by the Sacramento Regional Transit District.

It is a 4.3 miles extension from the existing terminus at Meadowview road to Cosumnes river college.

Construction began in 2011 and the extension was officially opened in August 2015. The project added four new light rail stations at Morrison creek, Franklin, Center Parkway and Cosumnes River College, and also involved the construction of two new light rail bridges.

The new light rail line extension project with a new transit center at CRC station provides commuters with an alternative to Highway 99 and minimizes congestion on Interstate 5. The extended line is expected to provide about 11,270 average weekday trips by 2030. The project created 1,700 new jobs and improves air quality in the region.
