DENVER — The commission overseeing efforts to launch passenger rail service along Colorado’s Front Range has hired its first project director.

Randy Grauberger, a long-time Colorado Department of Transportation staff member most recently employed at the engineering firm WP, has been hired by the Southwest Chief and Front Range Passenger Rail Commission. The group, created by the Colorado legislature in 2017, is charged with developing rail passenger service in the heavily populated area from Pueblo, Colo., to north of Denver, as well as working to preserve service by Amtrak’s Southwest Chief in the southeastern portion of the state.

“Front Range passenger rail service is vital for the future mobility of the state’s rapidly growing population,” Grauberger said in a statement announcing his hiring. “Integrating Front Range passenger rail service into the state’s transportation system will be good not only for providing another mode of travel for residents and visitors alike but also for economic vitality.  I’m very enthusiastic about this opportunity.”

The commission has an initial budget of $2.5 million and will closely coordinate with efforts by the state DOT.
