Adams County and RTD Release Joint Statement

The Regional Transportation District (RTD) and Adams County are excited to announce beginning Monday, Nov. 22, 2021, temporary service will be re-routed to provide services to the Adams County Justice Center.

In addition, through coordination between Adams County and RTD leadership, the two agencies were able to negotiate both a short-term and long-term solution to RTD Route 520 services to the Adams County Justice Center.

RTD service to the Adams County Justice Center is a vital component of a functioning and effective criminal justice system in the 17th Judicial District. RTD and Adams County are pleased to have come to a collaborative agreement on this vital project.

Beginning Nov. 22, 2021, RTD will implement a temporary detour that will allow customers to be dropped off and board RTD route 520 at the bus stop located on Judicial Center Drive. This detour will continue until the construction is completed at the nearby corner of Bromley Lane and Judicial Center Drive which is expected by the end of 2021.

“RTD aspires to be the trusted leader in mobility by connecting people to destinations throughout the region including key activity centers such as the Adams County Justice Center,” said RTD General Manager and CEO Debra A. Johnson. “I extend my appreciation to Adams County Manager Raymond Gonzales and his staff for the partnership with RTD and the collaborative nature through which the county and the agency were able to enhance access to the Justice Center.”  

Simultaneously, Adams County, in coordination with the City of Brighton, will be building two new bus stops on the north and south sides of Bromley Lane. The construction for the bus stop on the south side of Bromley Lane will be completed on Dec. 13, 2021. The anticipated construction for the bus stop on the north side of Bromley Lane will be completed in Spring 2022.

“I want to thank Debra Johnson and RTD staff for their collaboration and coordination on this important project,” said Adams County Manager Raymond H. Gonzales. “Providing public transit access to courthouses for disadvantaged members in our community is a basic need. This is a prime example of two large organizations working together to address a critical issue that impacts our entire criminal justice system.”
