ENGINEERING DESIGN REVIEW POLICY
Development submittals, including but not limited to: new or expanded development adjacent to RTD facilities (rail and bus corridors, tracks, Park-n-Rides, buildings, ROW, etc.) and development within RTD Station Master Planning areas, are to be reviewed by RTD. Submittals are typically made through the local jurisdiction with a referral for RTD review. Coordinate your work with the local jurisdictions and request that the local jurisdiction submit your plans to RTD.
Though submittals should come to RTD through the local jurisdiction review process, early design coordination between developers, utility owners, and jurisdictions should include RTD so that any needed changes to your design from RTD’s in-depth review may be incorporated in your preliminary design before causing significant delays or the need to re-submit.
Please direct submittals to RTD that do not require jurisdictional review or RTD related land development questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-299-2299.
Reviewers look at the following which includes, but is not limited to:
- Compliance with RTD Commuter Rail, Light Rail, Bus Infrastructure Design Criteria and Guidelines.
- Compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design (2010 ADASAD) or most recent adopted version.
- Compliance with the FTA guidelines.
