Southeast Rail Extension under construction
Posted on 06.09.16
RTD broke ground on the Southeast Rail Extension Project on Monday, May 16, 2016.
Our contractor, Balfour Beatty Infrastructure, Inc.'s (BBII) initial activities include surveying and environmental mitigation work to prepare for full-scale construction.
Traffic impacts are not expected to begin until later in summer 2016.
Current construction activities include:
- Utility relocations
- Clearing and grubbing
- Excavation on east side of I-25
- RidgeGate parking garage excavation and grading
- Pier construction for the RidgeGate bridge
The Southeast Rail Extension between Lincoln and RidgeGate is scheduled to open to the public in early 2019.
