Still need to make a resolution for 2012? How about this: Don't try to park in LoDo.

Now that RTD has chosen the Union Station Alliance to revamp the facility, the project to turn the area around the station into a multi-modal mainstay by 2014 is moving full speed ahead.

Already, a mountain of dirt behind Union Station testifies to all the excavation and construction work of the past year that will return the station area to its status as a true transportation hub; the Union Station Neighborhood Co. is supervising that job. The latest sign of the times? As of today, the two parking lots flanking the front of Union Station are off-limits, permanently -- as this photo proves.

All aboard!

This isn't the first transformation of the space in front of Union Station -- even if it promises to be most monumental. See more in our "Remaking Union Station Plaza" slide show.

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.
