RTD’s North Metro rail line, which will run 12.5 miles from Denver Union Station to 124th Avenue in Thornton, has officially broken ground.
Each new rail line is a catalyst for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) in metro Denver, and the impact the rail expansion will have on the entire metropolitan area is significant.
During the groundbreaking, RTD General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Phil Washington stated that 2014 marks the 20-year anniversary of rail transit opening in Denver and the 10-year anniversary of voters’ approval for the FasTracks expansion program to build 122 miles of new passenger rail and bus rapid transit across RTD’s eight-county district.
The line broke ground faster than expected, and we agree with Hickenlooper that the line, and all of RTD’s transit system, will be a defining characteristic of metro Denver.
