RTD’s Free MallRide detour extends to Champa beginning Sunday

With the first phase of construction of Denver’s 16th Street Mall Project continuing to make progress, RTD's Free MallRide detour will be extended two additional blocks beginning Sunday, May 22. The extended detour will take place between Wazee and Champa streets through August.

RTD's Free MallRide service began detouring in early April as the reconstruction project got underway. Shuttles will continue to provide service to the area, detouring around construction to 15th and 17th streets as needed. The map below outlines the current MallRide route and the temporary stop locations on 15th and 17th streets.

Construction is occurring in phases. RTD encourages customers to take advantage of the agency website and transit apps to stay informed of changes to transit services and quickly find options for alternate routes to avoid delays.
