BNSF is getting ready to extend the siding at Broomfield by moving the north switch roughly 3,800 feet beyond where it is today. As you can see here, a lot of the initial grading has been completed. The grade crossing in the distance is Brainard Drive. Or at least, it used to be! The grade crossing has been moved (the photographer is standing at the new grade crossing) to allow the old crossing to be closed so the siding can be extended. At the same time, the south end of the siding is being moved north too. The new south switch will lay just north of Nickel Street. This means the siding of Broomfield will no longer have any grade crossings for trains to contend with!
