Another Stalled Train


Apparently, RTD’s $4.7-billion FasTracks project will fall short of expectations no matter what. First, stories of budget issues for the project that will bring more than 100 miles of train service to the metro area sprouted—officials have toyed with scaling back routes, using more diesel trains. To make things worse, RTD can’t even succeed in picking stations for the voter-approved project, as witnessed last month when Thornton residents protested in droves a proposed stop at 144th Avenue and York Street because it was too close to a middle school.

What’s Next: We wait for RTD to make a final decision, although finding money to keep the original plan intact should be a priority.
