RTD Light Rail Southeast Extension
Starting this spring RTD Light Rail plans to start work on the construction of the Southeast Rail Extension. It will extend the E & F lines from the current Lincoln station 2.3 miles ending at the RidgeGate Parkway End-of-line Station by the S. Havana St. & I25 Exit. There will be three new stations Kiss-n-Ride at Sky Ridge Ave. near the medical center, another at the future Lone Tree City Center and a 1,300 space park and ride at RidgeGate Parkway.
The project is expected to cost $233.1 million and will be paid for as follows. $92 million will come from Federal funding, $28 million from local business
associations and businesses in the southeast metro Denver area, the remaining cost will come directly from the RTD budget from funds that were already allocated.
The two phased project had been awarded to Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Inc. (BBII) to design and build the 2.3 mile-long Southeast Rail Extension from Lincoln to RidgeGate Parkway. The decision took place during the Board of Directors meeting July 28, 2015. Design will begin during the fall with construction expected to start in spring 2016.
