The Olde Town improvements are complete. The project included redoing crosswalks at key intersections, removing existing striping on roadways, and building new medians complete with traffic warriors and new planters. The Olde Town Arvada Business Improvement District, in partnership with the Arvada Arts and Culture Commission, also installed three large street murals on the pedestrian street closure painted by muralists Chelsea Hart, Kailey Geary, and Talia Swartz Parsell.
Olde Town Street Closures
Early during the pandemic, the City of Arvada worked with the Olde Town Arvada Business Improvement District (BID) to temporarily close streets within Olde Town Arvada as part of its support to the local business community. The closures expanded patio dining and retail space to allow businesses the opportunity to safely serve more patrons. The response was largely favorable, and the City is now moving forward with a semi-permanent model.

Current Street Closures
As part of the City's continuing efforts to support recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, the City has partnered with the Olde Town Arvada Business Improvement District (BID) to close a few streets in the area to vehicle traffic. This allows shops and restaurants to use sidewalks for seating and shopping, leaving streets open for pedestrian traffic. You can view a larger version of the closure map by clicking on the image.
