Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

When we recently shared photos of progress on the rail line to DIA, we asked readers if they would be likely to use the train when the project's completed.

Still, some of the answers expressed frustration with the construction process, which isn't expected to end until the spring of 2016.

Here's one example.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
