The closure begins the first major West Corridor light rail construction project. Girders were placed for a light rail bridge over Kipling Street. Motorists were advised to take alternate routes by using Simms Street or Wadsworth Boulevard.
The West Corridor project is part of RTD's FasTracks transit program. The 12.1-mile light rail line will run from Union Station in Downtown Denver to the Jefferson County Government Center in Golden. The corridor is scheduled to open to the public in 2013.
