Judge to rule soon on Denver Union Station work

DENVER (AP) – A judge could rule soon on whether to grant a temporary restraining order that would block FasTracks transit construction at Union Station in Denver.

U.S. District Judge John Kane heard nearly six hours of testimony Wednesday on the request by the Colorado Rail Passenger Association and said he would rule Thursday.

The association, also known as ColoRail, has filed a lawsuit complaining that the Federal Transit Administration’s approval of an environmental impact statement for the project was tainted by a conflict of interest. The group is seeking a new study on environmental impacts.

ColoRail has said the plan to redevelop Union Station focuses too much on real estate development and not enough on transportation.
