Rtd Civic Center Station Construction / Denver, CO
How do you renovate a transit center for easier repairs in the future?
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 MallRide and is also the location of the Civic Center Plaza. A part of the downtown landscape for more than three decades, Mortenson transformed this important transit hub into a new state-of-the-art station.
The project involved a complete renovation of the site, including:
- A new structure that is easier to maintain and repair long-term
- Transformation to an open and welcoming environment
- Nine bus bays
- Glass-enclosed terminal building
- Bus concourse rebuild
- Bus ramp extension connecting Broadway to Lincoln
Part of the site adjacent to Colfax was preserved for future development opportunities.
