RTD has postponed planned overnight work at Louisiana-Pearl Station to refinish surfaces. The one-month project, which was intended to begin on April 2, will now take place in late spring.

Additional scheduled maintenance will be performed throughout the fall to support the safe and effective operation of the E, H, and R lines between the I-25/Broadway Station in Denver and the Lincoln Station in Lone Tree. Maintenance work will necessitate schedule alterations beginning in April and continuing through October, a release said.

RTD will begin an extended project on April 3 to undertake maintenance and repairs to the coping panels that run along the Southeast Rail Line south of Broadway to Lincoln Station next to I-25.

The planned work is projected to have considerable and intermittent impacts on rail service on the E, H, and R lines through the fall of 2023, a release said. 

The coping panel upgrades will be completed in nine phases. Workers will start at Lincoln Station and work their way north. In 2024, similar work will be carried out on the south side of the rail alignment.
