The Front Range Passenger Rail (FRPR) Project would provide a new travel option for Colorado Front Range residents and workers. As a new mobility option, FRPR would create an alternative to inter-regional travel on Interstate 25 (I-25) and provide a passenger rail backbone to facilitate expanded and connected multimodal travel in and among local communities. Providing safe, reliable travel options is essential for Colorado’s growing economy and population and is highly supported by Colorado residents and businesses. The recently completed Alternatives Analysis set out to clarify needs and opportunities of a FRPR system; develop, evaluate, and refine alignment and operational alternatives; and develop implementation strategies for FRPR to contribute to Colorado’s transportation infrastructure and provide travel, environmental, and economic benefits for the state and region.
