New on the I-225 Rail Line
Tracking the progress of Rail on the I-225 R LineWhen construction began in 2013 on the Aurora Line/I-225 Rail project (the future R Line), people only saw workers in hard hats, heavy equipment and lots of dirt moving. But now that the track is being installed, everything is starting to come together.
