RTD commuter rail station breaks ground Thursday, March 31

Join us Thursday, March 31 at 1:30 p.m. for a groundbreaking ceremony celebrating the start of construction on Commerce City’s new commuter rail station. The station is being built at E. 72nd Avenue and Colorado Boulevard as part of RTD’s North Metro Rail Line, which is scheduled to begin service in 2018.

Officials from Commerce City, RTD and Regional Rail Partners (the project contractor) will be on hand along with community members to mark the occasion. The ceremony will take place near the Fernald Trailhead, just west of E. 70th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, at the south end of the construction site.

The new Commerce City-72nd Avenue station will operate as part of the 18.5-mile North Metro Rail Line, an electric commuter rail line running from Denver Union Station through Commerce City, Thornton and Northglenn to Highway 7 in north Adams County. The station will better connect residents to the Denver metro area, taking travelers to Union Station in less time than it would take to drive.

Along with the arrival of the rail station itself, the city has developed a Station Area Master Plan (STAMP) to revitalize the surrounding neighborhoods through commercial development, diversified housing, infrastructure improvements, and neighborhood amenities.
