Regional Bus Facility (LRT to DUS Building)

In the interior of the bus facility, crews are continuing to install the electrical/mechanical rough-ins, fire protection and lighting.  Final finishes in the pedestrian concourse – including insulation, drywall, and the metal panels – continues as does installation of the glass that separates the pedestrian concourse from the bus loading area. Other finish work, like millwork, terrazzo tile for the floor and glass tiles, is also starting. Crews are working on the stairs, escalators, and elevators from the CRT platforms to the underground bus facility.

Commuter Rail (CRT) and Train Hall

With the Train Hall canopy structure complete, crews continue to work on touch-up painting, installation of gutters and technology wiring.  The pedestrian bridge that will connect the Wynkoop Plaza to Wewatta St. at the north end of the canopy has been placed.  Later this month crews will be working on the stairs and elevators that will provide access from the pedestrian bridge to the platforms. The PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) fabric (similar to the roof at DIA) will be installed towards the end of the month.  Crews will place it at the north end first and then tension it until it is taut.

CRT platforms, extensions and the associated wall erection are ongoing. This work includes grading, installing conduit, storm drains, and backfill.
