ARVADA RELEASES ITS INITIAL CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE FOR THE GARRISON STREET BRIDGE AND PARK REPLACEMENT


December 21, 2010

by John Kiljan

Over the weekend the City of Arvada released its initial construction and development schedule for the Garrison Street bridge replacement and new park. At this point it does not look like Garrison Street will be closed to traffic until October of 2011. Excavation and grading of the park will continue from the fall of 2011 through the spring of 2012, leaving most of the park available for use during the summer.

CLRC will provide updates to this schedule on its website at

as they become available.
