RTD broke ground on the Southeast Rail Extension Project on Monday, May 16, 2016.

The Southesast Rail Extension is under 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
