DENVER — Denver’s Regional Transportation District has met a deadline to submit a plan to the Federal Railroad Administration, outlining the agency’s method of fixing ongoing issues with crossing gates on the commuter rail line to Denver International Airport. reports a copy of the plan — which aims to resolve the crossing-gate issues within a year — will be available online beginning today (Monday, Dec. 17).

In a Nov. 15 letter, the RTD had set a Dec. 15 deadline to receive a plan to correct the problem with improper timing on crossing gates. [See "FRA could shut down Denver airport line because of crossing-gate issues,Trains News Wire, Dec. 7.] The letter said failure to meet that deadline could lead to actions up to and including revoking the waiver which has allowed the line to operate while the problems are fixed — a move which would have shut down the operation.
