The Gold Line is an 11.2-mile electric commuter rail transit line that will connect Denver Union Station to Wheat Ridge, passing through northwest Denver, Adams County and Arvada. There are eight stations: Denver Union Station, 41st/Fox, Pecos, Federal, Sheridan, Olde Town Arvada, Arvada Ridge and Ward Road. Final design is completed and utility relocations will soon begin. The Gold Line is scheduled to open to the public in mid-2016. The Gold Line is part of a larger project called the Eagle P3 project which includes the East Corridor transit line to Denver International Airport. The Eagle 3 project is an innovative public-private partnership which is fully funded. Read More.
With Gold Line construction getting closer and closer to Arvada, there are several road closures that will occur over the next several months.
Below is the anticipated schedule for upcoming road closures. Please keep in mind all of these dates are subject to change depending on weather delays.
BNSF railroad crossings:
- Tabor Street closed through mid-March
- Robb Street closed through mid-March
- Allison Street closed through mid-April
- Carr Street closed March 3 through mid-March
- Parfet Street closed mid-March through early April
As BNSF continues to work on their tracks in preparation of the Gold Line commuter rail, there will be future closures throughout the summer and fall around the BNSF rail lines. We will continue to keep you updated as closures occur.
Kipling Parkway Lane Closure:
In preparation of the Gold Line opening in 2016, Kipling Parkway at Ridge Road will be reduced to two lanes beginning January 20 through end of March 2014.
The inside lanes of Kipling Parkway, closest to the median, will be blocked off by concrete barriers to allow construction of two new railroad bridges.
The construction company, Denver Transit Constructors, anticipates this will affect morning and afternoon traffic in Arvada and may cause delays near the I-70 and Kipling Interchange in Wheat Ridge. Alternative routes of Wadsworth Boulevard and/or Ward Road are recommended.
For construction information, please contact the Gold Line team at (303) 576-3352. For after-hour emergencies, please call 1-855-EAGLE P3 (324-5373).
