Overview

The City of Arvada Public Works Department is conducting a multimodal study of Ward Road. The study will evaluate the corridor and recommend improvements to the bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. The limits of the study are from Ridge Rd to the south to W 72nd Avenue to the north.

Arvada Public Works is coordinating with the City of Wheat Ridge to extend the study area to the Ward Road G line Station as that is a major destination along the corridor and with CDOT as a large segment of the roadway is owned and maintained by CDOT.

The study aims to produce recommendations for improving the corridor in both the short term and long term.

Study Corridor

Process

The City is working with its consultant Toole Design Group, a group of residents on a Stakeholder Committee, and you, the public, to evaluate opportunities for bicycle and pedestrian improvements. The initial public meeting (see link under video tab) included an effort to identify existing conditions and improvement needs. Public input on the initial phase was collected until Sunday, February 7, 2021, and then analyzed by the project team. We appreciate all of the feedback that was provided by members of the public, the Stakeholder Committee, and the project team. This process has resulted in a number of final options that will be presented to the Stakeholder Committee and to the public on July 20, 2021. Please register for the meeting: This will be an opportunity to see the results to date and offer feedback.

The meeting and feedback will help the project team finalize the Ward Road Multimodal Study. The project team will work to develop a set of short term and long term improvements as well as prioritizing the improvements in the study. A report will be posted to Speak Up at the end of the project, ahead of the anticipated early Fall 2021 completion date.
