The stops are planned to be part of the G Line route to Wheat Ridge and Arvada. The G Line shares that portion of the route with the B Line.

The B Line runs past the two stations but doesn’t stop. The G Line has been delayed from its opening date last year to later this year.

The Federal Railroad Administration stopped testing on the G Line until issues with the gates on the A Line from Union Station to Denver International Airport were resolved. Last week, testing was approved for the G Line.
