The Regional Transportation District’s $2.2 billion Eagle project has hit significant milestones. The Eagle project is a portion of RTD’s sprawling FasTracks project to expand rail service across the metro area. Eagle includes lines from downtown to Denver International Airport, Arvada, and Westminser.
The Eagle projects’s first four passenger rail cars recently arrived at Denver Union Station, and the cars’ progress can be tracked at RTD’s website.
The last section of track has been laid in place on the East rail line between DIA and Denver Union Station, which is the first segment of the Eagle project, and is expected to open for passenger traffic in the second quarter of 2016.
