Denver RTD Breaks Ground for Civic Center Station Renovation

The Regional Transportation District (RTD) in Denver broke ground recently to commemorate the start of renovations to the downtown Denver Civic Center Station, described by RTD General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Dave Genova as one of “the transit center bookends of RTD’s 16th Street Mall shuttle service … a critical backbone to our region’s transportation plan and providing first-and-last-mile service to downtown commuters.”

Genova, who called Denver Union Station the other “bookend,” added that, “With the transformation of Union Station complete, it is time to shift our focus to this end of the mall as we look to revitalize the station and drive renewal of the area."

To symbolize the kickoff of construction, RTD demolished one of the station’s red and gray pillars at the conclusion of the ceremony. The station will be closed for approximately 12 months for repairs and reconstruction.

The current Civic Center Station was one of RTD’s busiest regional bus transit centers, with 18 routes serving an average of 15,000 passengers a day. The redesign will include a glass-enclosed terminal building and nine bus bays, as well as preserving land for future development and providing an open view from the 16th Street Mall to the Colorado State Capitol.

“The goal of this renovation is to revitalize the station and the surrounding areas so that it is a successful transit hub that provides connections and safety for riders, pedestrians and the community,” RTD Board Director Barbara Deadwyler said at the ceremony. “The new station will be a model of how multiple transit services can be organized with a very active but constrained urban area.”
