Olde Town Arvada street closures extended through March

Open container exemption to also continue

The Olde Town Arvada street closures the city implemented in the wake of the COVID-19 will be sticking around a while longer.

The closures, which went into effect on June 12 and allow establishments within the closure area to use the space for expanded patio seating as well as outdoor retail displays and other activities, will now continue through March 31, 2021

“The Olde Town Arvada Business Improvement District and the city of Arvada know it is critical to continue to do everything possible to support small businesses during this time,” said Joe Hengstler, Executive Director of the Olde Town Arvada BID. “We want to give the public every opportunity to social distance and be safe while continuing to frequent their favorite Olde Town businesses.”

The city also announced it is extending an executive order allowing open alcohol containers to be carried and consumed within Olde Towne to March 31 of next year.

A city press release announcing the extension of the orders also touted city efforts to make the permitting for tents and heaters for businesses to utilize this winter as easy as possible. According to the release, the city and BID are also looking for ways to help businesses attain the necessary resources to keep their space safe and warm in the cold weather months.

The current Olde Town Arvada closure plan includes Grandview Avenue from Webster Street to Olde Wadsworth Boulevard and sections of Olde Wadsworth Boulevard between Grandview Avenue and Grant Place and maintains essential access to businesses along the street.

The block between 57th Ave and Grant Place will open up by November 3, 2020, due to road construction changes on Ralston Road. A map of the closure area is available at arvada.org/explore/olde-town-arvada/olde-town-arvada.
