Update: RTD announced that downtown light rail stations have reopened.

Earlier: The gas leak that has stopped the H, F and D light rail lines at the convention center could be resolved mid-evening, says Xcel Energy spokesperson Mark Stutz.

Earlier this morning, Xcel Energy took the line with a leak out of service and switched the 15 customers it served to a new line without any interruptions to their service.

Since then, the company has been vacuuming the residual gas from the leak. But since the leak is within a foot of the light rail track, it’s been a slow process, Stutz said.
