Bentley’s ProjectWise document management system allowed the Fluor/HDR design team and its 38 external teaming partners on the Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) Eagle P3 commuter rail project to work as a single entity, saving about $3 million and enabling on-time project delivery.
The Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) on July 25, 2016 officially completed and opened the Denver Eagle P3 Commuter Rail Project B Line. The electrified six-mile line links Denver’s Downtown Union Station Transit Center to Westminster Station on the Denver-Boulder corridor.
Denver’s Eagle P3 is one of several major U.S. rail transit initiatives to use a public-private partnership (PPP) approach for an FDBOM (finance, design, build, operate and maintain) project.
Wabtec Corporation has signed a $27 million contract with Regional Rail Partners to provide Phase I signaling and communications systems, including Positive Train Control (PTC) equipment, for the new North Metro Rail Line in Denver, the company announced Nov. 9, 2015. The line will eventually be integrated into Regional Transit District (RTD) commuter rail services.
The Regional Transportation District (RTD) received official notice from the project concessionaire, Denver Transit Partners, that the University of Colorado A Line commuter rail service from Denver Union Station to Denver International Airport will be ready for service on April 22, 2016.
