About the Southeast Rail Extension
The Southeast Rail Extension Project is part of RTD’s 2004 voter-approved FasTracks plan to expand rapid transit across the Denver metro region. The project will extend the Southeast Rail Line 2.3 miles from Lincoln Station to RidgeGate Parkway in Lone Tree. There will be three new light rail stations: the Sky Ridge Station near Sky Ridge Medical Center; the LoneTree City Center Station; and a 1,300-space Park-n-Ride at the RidgeGate Parkway Station (Sky Ridge and Lone Tree Stations will be “Kiss-n-Ride” stations).

Much of the new line is grade-separated, including a 5-span, 620-foot-long light rail bridge over Lincoln Avenue; an 11-span, 1,397-foot-long light rail bridge over I-25 and a 4-span, 506-foot-long light rail bridge over RidgeGate Parkway.
