RTD Fastracks West Rail Line


MRS is proud of its participation with Balfour Beatty Rail, Inc., as part of the award-winning team chosen to execute the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) FasTrack West Corridor Project. MRS had responsibility to design, furnish, install and place into service the Train Control System and Highway Crossing Warning Systems for this $26.5M Light Rail Transit (LRT) extension.

The West Corridor is approximately 12 miles (nine miles double track, three miles single track), extending from Denver Union Station to Jefferson County through Denver, Lakewood, and Golden. Twelve new stations and 18 bridges are included on this project that also includes three tunnels, 10 interlockings, and 21 grade crossings.

The line opened to the public eight months ahead of schedule in April 2013.
