The Denver Post - - NEWS - — Kieran Ni­chol­son, The Den­ver Post

The Fed­eral Rail­road Ad­min­is­tra­tion on Wed­nes­day ap­proved RTD’s re­quest for fi­nal test­ing of the G-Line.

RTD, how­ever, still needs ap­proval from the Colorado Pub­lic Util­i­ties Com­mis­sion to com­plete test­ing on cross­ings along the 11-mile com­muter line that runs between Den­ver’s Union Sta­tion and Wheat Ridge.

The FRA ap­proval of RTD’s re­quest was an­nounced Thurs­day in a let­ter from RTD CEO David A. Gen­ova to board mem­bers.

On Sept. 27, the PUC de­nied RTD’s mo­tions to com­plete test­ing on the G-Line grade cross­ings. “We are still await­ing the writ­ten de­ci­sion from the Com­mis­sion that will de­ter­mine the next steps in the PUC process,” the let­ter said.
