Construction begins on 8th Avenue South

Construction is now underway on 8th Avenue South, between 9th Street South and the Pedestrian Bridge pathway. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Work will be conducted Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
  • Residents and businesses should expect typical noise, vibration and dust associated with construction.
  • The road will remain open during construction with traffic controls and single lane alternating traffic patterns in place as required. 

Work will include the construction of a paved path along 8th Avenue South to increase connectivity to the downtown core and enhance safety for pedestrians and formalize on-street parking and accessibility for health care facilities in the area. The Town of Golden is committed to helping residents of Golden move through the community in a more safe and efficient way whether by car, on foot, or on wheels.

This project is primarily grant-funded through the Investing In Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP): COVID-19 Resilience stream.
