Construction Starts at RTD Hub Site
Construction work has begun that will lay the foundation for a new RTD transportation hub on Coffman St. between 9th Ave and Longs Peak Ave. Work to repair broken concrete began on Monday and includes new concrete bus pads designed to withstand the constant use from by heavy regional and local RTD (Regional Transportation District) bus traffic.
