1. RTD’s downtown light rail reconstruction project to start in May

RTD is planning to undertake a multi-phased project to reconstruct miles of light rail track in downtown Denver. The first phase of the approximately $152 million, full-depth reconstruction project will commence in May and focus on five segments of at-grade rail and street intersections in the Downtown Loop.

Beginning May 26, all D and H line trains will be rerouted to Denver Union Station, and L Line service, which connects 30th•Downing Station to the Downtown Loop, will be suspended. No light rail service will operate in RTD’s central corridor through September 2024. Following completion of the project’s first phase in September, crews will pause reconstruction work until 2025, and all light rail services will resume normal operations. The project web page will be regularly updated with information. Read the full story.

2. Understanding the service change process

Next week – March 6 and 7 – RTD will provide opportunities for the public to give input on the upcoming proposed May service changes, during two virtual meetings and one in-person. Watch this video to learn more about how the service change process shapes changes that are implemented three times a year.
