About the Project
The Southeast Rail Line Extension will add approximately 2.3 miles to the current Southeast Light Rail line, as well as three new stations at SkyRidge, Lone Tree City Center and RidgeGate.
On March 8, 2011 the RTD Board of Directors approved the 2011 FasTracks Financial Plan. Included in the plan is $305 million in short-term funding for the projects not yet in construction or under contract. This includes the use of $9 million for the Southeast Rail Extension for final design and advanced environmental work. RTD will also seek federal funding for the project.
The project team is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) that will allow the team to apply for New Starts - a federal funding opportunity. As part of the process, the team determined a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA). The team will report back findings of the environmental process during a public meeting in the fall. Check back for a meeting date and location.
