Southeast Rail Extension

The Southeast Rail Line includes 19.1 miles of the popular RTD light rail system. It extends from I-25/Broadway to Lincoln Avenue in Douglas County, with an additional connection along I-225 from I-25 to Parker Road.

The Southeast Rail Extension was accepted into the project development phase of the federal New Starts program. The RTD Board of Directors authorized a $207 million extension of the Southeast Rail Line at its regular meeting on July 15, 2014.

The environmental assessment has been released. You can see it here. A public meeting about the EA happened in August 2014. See the presentation here.

The Southeast Rail Line Extension will make the Southeast line even more
successful than it is today. The current plan is to extend light rail
transit service to the new RidgeGate Parkway Interchange by providing
the following:
  • Kiss-n-Ride station at Sky Ridge Medical Center
  • Kiss-n-Ride station at Lone Tree City Center
  • New end-of-line station at RidgeGate with a 1,300 space Park-n-Ride
When the extension is completed residents will be able to travel on one train from the RidgeGate station via the I-225 Rail Line through Aurora to Peoria Station and connect to the commuter train to Denver International Airport; or stay on one train and travel to Union Station in downtown Denver.
