Just west of Colorado Blvd, BNSF tracks cross over former Denver Rock Island (now Union Pacific) tracks. The line above originates to the north (right) at Sand Creek off BNSF's Brush Sub. It is an industrial lead track that services several industries northeast of I-70 and Colorado Blvd. The lower track was once the CRIP's (Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific) line into town to connect with the Rio Grande's Belt Line. In the future, Union Pacific has plans to add a second track and send coal traffic to the Limon Sub via the CRIP!
