Four of Denver's light rail stations are shutting down for three weeks.

The closures go into effect at midnight Friday.

They include the Invesco Field at Mile High Station, the Auraria West Campus, the Pepsi Center station at Elitch Gardens and the Denver Union Station.

Shuttle services will be available for commuters. RTD plans to deploy a fleet of its buses to all locations.

"We are still going to provide the service of getting them from station to station, but it will just be on a bus," Daria Serna, RTD spokesperson, said.

Serna says you will want to give yourself an extra 10 to 15 minutes to prepare for your commute over the next three weeks.

The closures are part of a multi-year plan to connect Denver to Golden. Eventually another project will take place to connect Union Station to Denver International Airport.
