Today, RTD will begin an extended project to perform maintenance and repairs to the caps on top of the retaining walls, called coping panels, that run along the Southeast Rail Line south of Broadway to Lincoln Station next to I-25.

The project will ensure continued safe and efficient operation at various locations along the E, H and R lines between I-25•Broadway Station in Denver and Lincoln Station in Lone Tree. The maintenance work will result in periodic schedule adjustments lasting into October.  

The work is expected to significantly and periodically affect rail service on the E, H, and R lines through fall of this year. Customers are encouraged to plan ahead by visiting RTD’s service disruptions webpage to view adapted rail schedules and for tools to help with trip planning.
