It’s a step that will change the way thousands get to the Denver International Airort. On Friday, the two electric commuter rails were tested on the new tracks from Union Station to DIA.
Federal Boulevard has a week of closures between 56th and 60th avenues while crews work on the Gold Line as part of the Regional Transportation District’s FasTracks project.
Voters overwhelmingly approved a huge expansion of light rail in the Denver metro area in 2004. Nine years after FasTracks was approved the West Line started running.
