72nd Information Update

Road Work Information Update from the City of Arvada as of January 10, 2022:

Miller Street Closure

To facilitate the installation of a water line and tie-in, SEMA (contractor) has been granted permission to close Miller Street at the W. 72nd Avenue intersection. This closure will facilitate the installation of a water line and tie-in to the existing system that crosses Miller Street. Excavation will be required on Miller Street. The closure will allow this work to be expedited with minimal impact to the neighborhood.
The closure will be in place January 10 through January 24. Schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather. 

Sidewalk remains closed

The south sidewalk on W. 72nd Avenue from Quail to Simms streets remains closed through January 2022 for Xcel's work installing the underground conduit. For their safety, we want to remind students from Oberon Middle School and Lincoln Academy to use the north sidewalk. Please do not walk in the street.
