The East Corridor mainline turns north as it crosses Airport Boulevard as it heads east towards DIA. This simulation pictures the line looking north on Airport Boulevard at what is termed the City of Aurora Gateway.
Poitra provided expertly-done photo simulations, and sometimes under tight time constraints, which were instrumental in conveying project concepts to our audiences. ”

The line is carried on pre-cast concrete viaduct up from Smith Road crossing Airport and curving north to cross I-70, then down to grade parallel to Ariport Boulevard to the north.
Little preparation of the original photograph was required.
POITRA constructed an accurate detailed 3D computer model of the proposed viaduct structure and the surrounding landmarks such as the existing curbs and medians. The viaduct model included the safety fencing, signage, overhead catenary systems and the POITRA model EMU vehicles. The models were then camera matched, lighted, rendered and composited with the photograph to create a photo-realistic simulation.
The simulations were finished using traditional image editing methods. POITRA relied upon its principal's previous career experience in bridge design to complete the viaduct efficiently from very conceptual plans.
The finished simulations were used in meetings with the City and County of Denver, Fastracks public stakeholders and also in the EIS document.
