Great news from FasTracks – the East Corridor, traveling from Denver Union Station to DIA will host a ground breaking ceremony August 26!
The 22.8-mile corridor is currently in Final Design and will be built as the first phase (along with the Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility) of the Eagle P3 project. The corridor will have stations at Union Station, 38th/Blake, Colorado (just north of 40th near the intersection with Smith Road), Central Park (behind Wal-Mart at Quebec Square), Peoria/Smith, and 40th/Airport. RTD has recommended that Electric Mulitple Units (EMU) commuter rail transit be used on the corridor.
Also, Santiago Calvatrava will be in Denver Thursday to unveil his proposed design for a bridge and station and accompanying hotel at DIA!
The next month looks to be huge for transit in Denver! More info to come later this week.
