Semi-truck damage to crossing gate prompts A-line delays

DENVER - RTD says A-line passengers should expect delays Wednesday morning after a semi-truck hit a crossing gate structure at the Holly Crossing, causing extensive damage.

In wake of the incident, the A-line is only using track 2 in between Bright and Quebec. They say they’ve doubled the amount of trains on that track to accommodate as many passengers are possible.

People taking the train between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. should allow extra travel time, RTD said. The trains are running every 30 minutes with four cars each trip. 

This is the second morning in a row the A-line has been delayed. A server issue caused a delay Tuesday morning, but that was quickly resolved.

The A-line, which opened in April, runs between Union Station and Denver International Airport.
