The light rail tracks actually cross Bayaud near Galapago Street, five blocks to the west of Cherokee Street.
RTD did not release Twitter messages about delays in that area, as normally occurs during most accident investigations.
Light rail routes C, D, E, F, and R run on this section of RTD’s rail.
