Fluor-led team completes third commuter rail for Denver Eagle P3 project


A team led by US-based engineering and construction firm Fluor has completed construction on the 11-mile third commuter rail, Gold Line (G Line), of the Denver Eagle Public-Private Partnership (P3) Commuter Rail Project.

The Eagle P3 Commuter Rail Project is owned by Denver transit authority Regional Transportation District (RTD).

In 2016, RTD has opened the University of Colorado A Line, serving downtown Denver and Denver International Airport, and the B Line serving the historic center of Westminster to the Union Station Transit Center.

The G line will connect passengers from the westernmost station, at Wheat Ridge & Ward, to Union Station in downtown Denver. It includes six additional stations and a total of 2,230 new parking spots.

Fluor infrastructure and power business president Terence Easton said: “Fluor is proud of the G Line opening as it signifies the completion of Denver’s investment in key infrastructure improvements and increases connectivity for commuters for generations to come.

“The Eagle P3 Project has empowered progress and transformed the Denver economy with more than $2 billion in direct economic impact during construction.”

The Eagle P3 project is a public-private partnership that was awarded to Denver Transit Partners (DTP) by Denver’s RTD.

DTP comprises Fluor, John Laing, and Aberdeen Infrastructure Investments, Balfour Beatty Infrastructure, Alternative Concepts, and Ames Construction.

As part of the contract agreement, DTP consortium is responsible for operating the A Line, B Line and G Line for the 29 years.

The Eagle P3 project forms part of the RTD’s FasTracks program, which aims to build 122 miles of commuter rail and light rail, 18 miles of bus rapid transit service, add 21,000 new parking spaces, redevelop Denver Union Station and redirect bus service to better connect the eight-county district.
