A team led by US-based engineering and construction firm Fluor has completed and opened the first phase of the 41-mile B Line of the Denver Eagle Public-Private Partnership (P3) Commuter Rail Project.

The line stretches for six miles, running between Denver’s Downtown Union Station (DUS) and Westminster Station via Adams County and North Denver.

Helping travel between Westminster and the Union Station Transit Centre, commuters can connect to the C, E, and W light-rail lines, and the University of Colorado A Line to Denver International Airport, as well as to local and regional buses.

The new B Line is the second major commuter rail project this year. In April, the first 23-mile University of Colorado A Line commenced operation, running between downtown Denver Union Station and Denver International Airport.

"The line stretches for six miles, running between Denver’s Downtown Union Station (DUS) and Westminster Station via Adams County and North Denver."

Denver RTD has awarded the Eagle P3 project to the Fluor-led joint venture of Denver Transit Partners (DTP), which will operate and maintain it using the design-build-finance-operate-maintain model.

Denver Transit Partners' executive project director and CEO Aaron Epstein said: “The B Line opening is an outstanding milestone for the Denver metro region as it increases mobility and transit access for commuters linking downtown to the Westminster area.

“The Fluor-led joint venture and our partners worked as one team with RTD to advance this project and use our integrated and innovative solutions approach to deliver the B Line.”

As a member of DTP, Balfour Beatty is responsible for the delivery of the Eagle P3 Commuter Rail Network project in the US.
