The Gold Line is an 11.2-mile electric commuter rail transit line that will connect Denver Union Station to Wheat Ridge, passing through northwest Denver, Adams County and Arvada. There are eight stations: Denver Union Station, 41st/Fox, Pecos, Federal, Sheridan, Olde Town Arvada, Arvada Ridge and Ward Road. Final design is completed and utility relocations will soon begin. The Gold Line is scheduled to open to the public in mid-2016. The Gold Line is part of a larger project called the Eagle P3 project which includes the East Corridor transit line to Denver International Airport. The Eagle 3 project is an innovative public-private partnership which is fully funded. Read More.
