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

Earlier this week, we shared photos of progress on the rail line to DIA, a project that's expected to be completed in the spring of 2016.

The plan is for light rail to reach Aurora next year as well, and a new report details how things are going on that part of this massive undertaking in photos and more.

We've included the entire document below, following a slew of photos featuring City of Aurora captions, plus graphics that detail progress along the Interstate 225 corridor, as well as upcoming construction. 

Following that is a 7News that looks at the construction boom around new light rail stations and the hope of Aurora officials that young professionals will flock to these areas.

Check it all out below.
