Pearl Parkway closed for railroad crossing rehabilitation


From 7 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16, to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17, Pearl Parkway, between 30th Street and Frontier Avenue, will be closed in both directions for work on the railroad crossing. This closure will include the multi-use path along the south side of Pearl Parkway. Access to local businesses will be maintained throughout the project.


During construction, motorists will be detoured to Arapahoe and Valmont roads, and cyclists and pedestrians will be detoured north to the Goose Creek path.  Detours will be posted, and alternate routes are advised. The RTD route 206 will be detoured onto Valmont Road between 30th Street and Foothills Parkway. Transit stops in the area will be closed and bus passengers on the 206 will encounter delays.


Crews from BNSF Railway will be working to restore the entire railroad crossing on Pearl Parkway. The project will include the complete replacement of rails and ties, installation of new concrete crossing panels, and restoration of the roadway and multi-use path approaches. The work schedule is weather-dependent and closure dates and times are subject to change.


Questions about the closure may be directed to David Neubauer of BNSF Railway at 307-432-7363. For more information, contact Alex May, Transportation Project Manager at 303-441-3266 or visit
