New on the I-225 Rail Line

I-225 Rail Line Newsletter - July 2015

Tracking the progress of Rail on the I-225 R Line

When 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.

Photos: Train Stations under construction

All eight of the I-225 Rail - R Line's train stations are currently
under construction. Iliff is the farthest along, it has its canopies
built. You can see them in the photo gallery here.

Video: Animated tour of I-225 R Line

Go on an animated video tour of the entire I-225 Rail's R Line. It takes over the whole alignment from the existing Nine Mile Station to the new Peoria Station. Watch the video here.

Staying safe around trains

Safety is RTD's top priority. This 10.5-mile light rail line that's under construction through Aurora has almost 30 crossings along the corridor. Read more to learn more about these crossings.

Aurora Line/I-225 Rail celebrates progress

The Aurora Line/I-225 Rail team held an event April 30 to celebrate progress on the 10.5-mile light rail line. If you weren't among the nearly 200 people who attended "Connecting Aurora through Rail - Celebrating Progress" event, never fear! We have a video of the festivities, provided by Aurora Channel 8.

Watch: What to expect in 2015

See the current work and outlook for progress during 2015 on the I-225 Rail Line through Aurora. The Kiewit Infrastructure team of Courtney O'Connor and Gabi Johnson take us on this updated tour.

Video: The keys to staying safe in light rail cone zones

What you'll see in this video is eye-opening.

Light rail construction zones can be hazardous to motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and workers. But if everyone makes sure they're not distracted and stay focused when maneuvering through the zones, everyone will stay safe.
