RTD light-rail barricade stuck on Auraria campus

The red-and-white striped arm that blocks traffic when a light-rail passes by is stuck in the down position on Fifth Street at the Auraria campus.

The crossing barricade has been stuck and blocking traffic on Fifth Street since yesterday, said Regional Transportation District spokesperson Marta Sipeki.

โ€œCrews are out there trying to figure out what the problem is and once we know what the problem is, we can fix it,โ€ Sipeki said.

There is no estimated time for reopening. The barricade is located on Fifth Street between Curtis Street and West Colfax Avenue.

The issue is not impacting RTD service, Sipeki said, and there are easy detours in the area.
