The station closed on January 6, 2013 as part of RTD's January Service Changes to help with keeping trains running on time and improving bus connections at the 30th & Downing station.[3] The RTD Board of Directors voted in October 2013 to not demolish the station in light of ongoing studies of the Welton Street corridor.[4] The January 14, 2018 service changes introduced the L Line, which now passes through this station in place of the D Line.[5]
