Commuter Rail Maintenance FacilityRTD needs the Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility (CRMF) to repair, maintain, clean and store the vehicles that will serve the four FasTracks commuter rail corridors: Gold Line, East Corridor, Northwest Rail and North Metro.
The site of the CRMF is Fox North, located at 48th Avenue and Fox Street, just north of I-70 and west of I-25. A Supplemental Environmental Assessment (Supplemental EA) was conducted to evaluate the impacts its implementation may cause and mitigations where appropriate.
Facts about the CRMF site:
- 30-acre site
- The majority of the property on the Fox North site was already required for other FasTracks projects
- Located on the Gold Line and Northwest Rail alignments and connected to the East and North Metro corridor lines at Denver Union Station
- The facility will repair, maintain, clean and store the RTD FasTracks commuter rail fleet
