RTD Testing - Train Horns

RTD

As G Line testing approaches the final stages, more trains have been added for trips occurring from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Those living and working along the alignment understand firsthand that this fact has led to an increase in train horns, which are required to be sounded as train operators pass through intersections until all rail crossings are certified by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). After that, local jurisdictions can file quiet zone applications with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). RTD will announce the start of quiet zones for the G Line once such approvals from the FRA are in place. We appreciate the public’s patience as this process is completed.

RTD has not yet determined an opening date for passenger service. With more trains running more frequently along the alignment, people should exercise caution as they move and drive through the area. Trains could travel from either direction at any moment. It’s also possible during testing that crossing gates may stay down for extended periods of time.

In case of an emergency, the public can call the grade-crossing hotline, at 720-460-5955, or 303-299-3911 after hours.
