A vehicle crash occurring at the light rail crossing on West Collins Avenue east of Simms Street in Lakewood damaged the equipment that operates several neighboring light rail crossing warning lights and gates. West Collins will be closed between Simms and Quail while the Regional Transportation District repairs equipment. Traffic on Simms and Quail will be detoured south to West Eighth Avenue or north to West Colfax Avenue. Neighboring rail crossings are also affected. When approaching RTD light rail crossings in the area, follow the commands of the RTD flaggers. RTD estimates it will take approximately two weeks to repair the damaged equipment.
