Roadway work to begin on downtown site this summer

(May 14, 2015)

The City of Westminster is seeking bids from contractors to build the initial phase of roadways and utilities for the city’s new downtown development on the site of the former Westminster Mall.

The project includes construction of one of the main project roadways, Westminster Boulevard, from 88th Avenue to 92nd Avenue on the western portion of the site. The project, which will begin this summer, also includes other roadways and installation of the utilities that will service the initial phases of development on the site.

“The construction will bring a lot of energy to the site, and people will quickly see it taking shape as a traditional downtown grid,” said Deputy City Manager Jody Andrews, who is leading the city’s project team.

Late last year the city approved a master plan for the 105-acre site, located at U.S. 36 and Sheridan Boulevard, that will guide its transformation into an urban-style development with an emphasis on outdoor life and pedestrian/bicycle friendliness in keeping with a city known for its parks, open spaces and trails.

The city is working with a variety of developers to bring in a vibrant mix of residential, retail and office uses. According to Andrews, using a “block by block” approach to development will bring greater variety to the site over time and provide a more authentic downtown feel.

If you are a contractor interested in submitting a bid, please call the city's Assistant City Engineer, Dave Loseman, 303-658-2125.
