DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Balfour Beatty has completed construction and opened the 2.3-mile
extension of the Denver Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) E, F
and R light rail lines. Known as the Southeast Rail Extension during
construction, the project adds three new stations: Sky Ridge Station,
Lone Tree City Center Station and Ridgegate Parkway Station.

Connecting commuters in Denver’s southeast metro area to important
destinations throughout the line, the project extends the E, F and R
lines from Lincoln Station farther southeast, adjacent to Interstate 25
and into the Denver suburb of Lone Tree, Colo. The project also adds
1,300 parking spaces for commuters in a park-and-ride lot at the
Ridgegate Parkway Station.

“The grand opening of the extended E, F and R lines is a great milestone
for RTD, Balfour Beatty and everyone involved in the delivery of the
Southeast Rail Extension project,” said Roger Wilson, vice president of
Balfour Beatty’s U.S. rail division. “The Denver Metro region is
experiencing tremendous growth and we’re honored to be RTD’s partner in
expanding its rail service to meet the region’s access and mobility
needs for the future.”

Balfour Beatty joined RTD for a grand opening ceremony on May 17, which
included remarks from RTD General Manager and CEO Dave Genova, Lone Tree
Mayor Jackie Millet, and other elected officials and community leaders
who were instrumental in making the rail extension a reality. Revenue
service at the three new stations began on May 19. For additional

The Southeast Rail Extension project is part of the RTD’s voter-approved
FasTracks program to build 122 miles of commuter rail and light rail, 18
miles of bus rapid transit service, add 21,000 new parking spaces,
redevelop Denver Union Station and redirect bus service to better
connect the eight-county district.
