On Monday, April 3, RTD began 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 work is expected to significantly impact rail service on the E, H, and R lines through fall of this year.
The improvements to the coping panels will be done in nine segments, or blocks, and will take place Mondays through Fridays 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Adjusted E and R Line schedules will be in place seven days a week to accommodate storage of equipment.
Crews will begin at Lincoln Station and proceed north. Similar work will happen again for the south side of the rail alignment in 2024.
RTD thanks customers and the public for their understanding as the agency works to make lives better through connections.
