RTD broke ground today on the Northwest Rail Line. This is for the first segment of the line going between Denver Union Station and the Westminster Station near 71st and Lowell. The first 6.2 miles has been funded by a public-private partnership called the Eagle P3 Project. The rest of the 41 mile line which is designed to go up to Longmont is still up for debate.

Currently, there is much talk of the rest of the line being a bus rapid transit service. To read more, click on the Broomfield Enterprise report.
