I-225 RTD Light Rail Extension

The I-225 Rail Line is a 10.5-mile light rail line within the City of Aurora and a small section of northeast Denver. It will connect the existing Nine Mile Station on the Southeast Light Rail Line with the upcoming Peoria/Smith Station on the East Rail Line.

The I-225 Rail Line includes 1,800 parking spaces and eight stations: Iliff, Florida, City Center, 2nd/Abilene, 13th Avenue, Colfax, Fitzsimons and Peoria.

The I-225 Rail Line will provide regional connectivity to major activity centers like the Aurora City Center, University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus, Fitzsimons Life Science District, Children's Hospital, the new VA Hospital, and Denver International Airport through a transfer at Peoria to the East Rail Line.
