What is the commuter rail maintenance facility?

RTD 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 Rail Line, Northwest Rail and North Metro.

The site of the CRMF is Fox North, located at 5151 Fox St., 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
The train cars enter the building on the elevated track, allowing mechanics to work on the wheels and under the cars, while the next level allows access to the interior of the cars for cleaning and the top level affords access to the roof for maintenance.
