Denver Union Station will serve as the transportation hub of the region. When complete, the $484 million project will serve as the hub of the Regional Transportation District system and will integrate all forms of local transportation including light rail, Amtrak, local bus service, MallRide, vans, and other forms of transportation.
Spokespeople for the Denver Union Station Project Authority say the main construction components of the transit plan are approximately 95 percent complete.
The light rail station and the 16th Street Mall Shuttle have been relocated and extended to the northwest and have been operational since mid-2012.
Improvement and construction of the streets and various plazas are more than 90 percent complete with Chestnut Street already rebuilt and plans to rebuild Wewatta in the coming months.
