On any given day, RTD and RRP (Regional Rail Partners, the contractor) have up to 100 employees in the office, not including the many people engaged with RTD and RRP from the local jurisdictions along the footprint of the project.
Field forcesBut field forces substantially outnumber all of these folks with as many as 200 field employees working on the project during summer months.
RRP has 114 subcontractors working on the N Line and of those, almost half are lower-tier local subcontractors.
These subcontractors perform such tasks as material testing, street sweeping, traffic control, drilling, demolition, trucking, etc.
Total employmentIn all, the North Metro Rail Line project will employ more than 300 people during peak construction periods and will maintain approximately 200 employees until completion.
