Service Disruption

RTD to continue overnight track repairs this week along sections of E, R lines

RTD Staff

RTD will continue to make necessary track repairs to sections of the Southeast Corridor Light Rail Line during overnight hours Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Crews will not work overnight Wednesday, July 3 into Thursday morning, in observance of the Independence Day holiday.

E and R line services along the alignment will be temporarily impacted between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., and bus shuttles will be provided to support customers during the upcoming maintenance window. The near-term track repair work will address maintenance issues resulting in reduced train speeds in the slowdown zone impacting the E and R lines south of the Southmoor Station.

Repairs to approximately two miles of southbound track between Orchard and Arapahoe at Village Center stations were completed this week, and speed restrictions are now lifted along this segment of the corridor. As additional repair work is completed, speed restrictions will continue to be lifted.Customers are encouraged to visit RTD’s website, call Customer Care at 303.299.6000 or sign up for Service Alerts to stay informed about impacts to rail services during the agency's ongoing preventative maintenance.
