RTD detours and road closures

Bus Routes affected:  0, 1/1W, 6, 8, 9, 10, 15, 15L, 16, 16L, 20, 28/28B, 32, 38, 44, 48, 52, 83D/83L, 16th Street Mall Shuttle.

All of these bus routes will begin detouring upon request by the Denver Police Department around the parade route to get passengers as close as possible to the normal routing.

Light rail routes/lines affected: D, F, H

All F, H and D line service will end at the Convention Center. All downtown stations will be closed upon request by Denver police as crowds and safety issues dictate. A train shuttle will run between 30th/Downing to 20th/Welton. All C and E line service will run a regular schedule to and from Union Station.

Officials anticipate detours will begin by 9 a.m. with the earliest detours to begin in the area of Civic Center Park and expanding to the areas around the parade route.

Because Civic Center Station is along the parade route, the station will be closing in the morning as crowds and safety dictate.  The 16th Street Mall Ride service will also be suspended at some point, officials said, depending on the crowds and safety guidelines.

RTD will be operating on a normal weekday schedule until the detours take effect once police close streets and intersections, and will resume normal routing and schedules as streets reopen.
