Stapleton light rail update May 9, 2013

Hello Fellow Stapleton residents and visitors,Stapleton light rail

This is a copied message from RTD in regards to a significant road closure that will certainly effect East side Stapleton residents. It is the good news and bad news for us who have been clamoring about how backed up Havana can be at Smith road. The construction will begin to make the intersection much better for the short term while also preparing it for the future commuter rail coming through Stapleton towards the DIA line and the Southeast line/225 line that will go to Tech Center. 

It mentions an approximate 60 day closure, while they lay track starting as soon as May 23rd. I am optimistic and have really enjoyed the rapid and evident progress in bringing the rail to our community. This inconvenience will hopefully be worth it in the long run. Of course using Central Park Blvd to the West and Peoria to the East will be the way around.

I will try to get over there during construction for an update with pictures.

Here is the post and contact information if you need it.

Give the Stapleton Home Team a call for the latest information and how to get a home close to the new Stapleton commuter rail stations.
