Update of operational waiver for commuter rail lines

RTD and its contractor, Denver Transit Partners, continue to coordinate with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) to resolve crossing timing issues along the University of Colorado A Line.

These crossing timing issues will affect the future of all commuter rail travel, including travel on the B Line and testing on the G Line. All entities are working hard to get approval to start testing again on the G Line.

Dave Genova, RTD General Manager and CEO, and his team met with officials on Jan. 23 in Washington, D.C. to update them on progress and discuss current challenges with the crossings. The FRA has extended the operational waiver through April 30, 2017.
