ColoRail to announce Union Station lawsuit

Colorado Rail Passenger Association (ColoRail) plans to file a federal lawsuit to halt implementation of the proposed redevelopment plan for Denver Union Station. The all-volunteer advocacy organization says the proposed plan is "short on transportation services that were committed to in the earlier planning processes and published documents. Specific concerns include the lack of expansion capacity for future transportation services, including planned passenger rail on the I-70 and Front Range corridors; insufficient passenger convenience and connectivity; and proposed project design features that are excessively costly to construct, will seriously disturb the neighborhood, and entail unnecessarily high operation and maintenance costs that have yet to be fully explained to the public."

ColoRail Board President Ira P. Schreiber and lead attorney Philipp Theune will hold a press conference at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 18, at 17th and Wewatta streets to talk about the suit.
