Mortenson Construction Breaks Ground on Civic Center Station Renovation
Denver, CO – Mortenson Construction broke ground on Civic Center Station on Thursday, July 7, marking the start of a $26M renovation project that was approved by Denver’s Regional Transportation District (RTD) in March. The architect for the project is SEH.
The renovations will include a new structure that is easier to maintain and repair, a glass-enclosed terminal building, a bus concourse rebuild, a ramp extension, nine bus bays and a view that creates an open and welcome environment.
The station closed for renovation this month and substantial completion of the project is scheduled for late September 2017.
“Once this project is complete, it will be a state-of-the-art transit hub to complement Union Station that will provide improved connections and convenience for our passengers,” said Tom Tobiassen, RTD Board Chair.
Civic Center Station serves as one of RTD’s busiest regional bus transit centers with eighteen routes serving an average of 15,000 passengers a day. It provides a turnaround point for the 16th Street Free Mall Ride and is also the location of the Civic Center Plaza.
