About the Project
The Central Rail Extension, as part of FasTracks, will connect existing downtown light rail service with the planned 38th/Blake Station on the East Rail Line alignment.
As part of the planning process, an Environmental Evaluation (EE) was conducted, including an analysis of alternative alignments and station locations, identification of impacts and a recommendation for ways to minimize any impacts through the corridor.
The RTD Board of Directors adopted the EE for the Central Rail Extension on Feb. 16, 2010.
The CRE is currently undergoing further analysis, including the evaluation of streetcar vehicles.
Once final funding is identified, final design and construction will begin on the project.
