Southwest Rail Extension

The Southwest Light Rail Line opened in July 2000 as an 8.7 mile extension from I-25/Broadway to Mineral Avenue in Littleton. The Southwest Light Rail has five stations with nearly 2,600 parking spaces.

The Southwest Rail Extension will make the Southwest line even more successful by adding the following:
  • 2.5 miles of track
  • An end-of-line station at C-470/Lucent Boulevard
  • 1,000 space Park-n-Ride facility at the end-of-line station
An intermediate station, located near the southeast corner of the C-470/US 85 Interchange is also being considered as part of this current phase of study. This station is currently not a part of the FasTracks plan.
