Denver RTD light rail delays will continue this week due to ongoing repairs | Transportation

Denver RTD light rail riders will continue to see service impacts on the E, H and R lines south of Southmoor Station due to ongoing repair issues, a spokesperson said Tuesday.

“Repairs on lines E, H and R will continue throughout the week,” spokeswoman Tina Jaquez said via email. “This will force us to maintain 30-minute frequencies on the line. We regret any inconvenience this causes to our customers. We appreciate the patience as we continue to make repairs.

The bus shuttle between Florida and 13th Avenue will continue as repairs to the R line continue after a train derailment at Exposition Avenue and Sable Boulevard on September 21. threatening injuries, according to an Aurora Fire Department spokeswoman.

There are no new updates on the investigation into the causes of the derailment, she said.

On Monday morning, RTD suspended all light rail services between its Colorado, Ridgegate and Florida stations for “emergency maintenance”. Shuttles were offered to users of lines H, R and E. They remained closed until Monday afternoon.

“It wasn’t related to the derailment,” she said.
