Build Alternatives - Central Segment

One of the critical decision points that is yet to be determined is the Blue Line’s preferred crossing of the Colorado River. Therefore, the alternatives defined for the Blue Line Corridor Alternatives Analysis include two Build Alternatives:

  • Build Alternatives – Central Segment Option 1: New Crossing
  • Build Alternatives – Central Segment Option 2: Shared Crossing

Option 1: New Crossing

Blue Line crosses Colorado River between Congress and I-35 at:

  • Trinity or
  • Waller Creek

Blue Line connects to the Downtown Station and to Republic Square.

Blue Line may shift to Red River Street between the Convention Center and Dean Keeton Street (exact location TBD).
