Downtown Street Renewal: 9th Avenue North

Town Projects

The Town of Golden is committed to the ongoing inventory, analysis, and prioritization of core infrastructure renewals. This includes upgrades and improvements for roads and deep utilities; buildings and the systems associated with them. 

The Downtown Street Renewal project on the 600 block of 9th Avenue North is one of the top infrastructure replacement priorities according to our 2019 Infrastructure Replacement Priority Plan. 

In 2021 we asked our approximately 3,700 citizens for permission to borrow $5M for the replacement of deep utilities, road structure, surface, and streetscape renewal for two downtown streets which they overwhelmingly did. Work on 9th Street North between IGA and Ford is expected to be complete by the end of June 2022.
