The City of Golden has begun construction to replace the culvert beneath Heritage Road at Apex Gulch. The concrete box culvert that carries Apex under Heritage Rd is collapsing and must be replaced before it fails completely. To complete this work, road closures will be necessary.
Please download the map below for location and detours. Construction began January 17, 2018 and should last 3 months, weather dependent.
Notifications have been mailed to area residents, and variable message boards have also been placed on Heritage Rd.
Once the last present has been unwrapped and the tinsel and lights come off, your Christmas tree might look a little lonely. Why not give it a new life as mulch that nourishes Golden's gardens in 2018?
The City of Golden provides a quick and easy way for you to dispose of your Christmas trees after the ornaments and lights have come off. Drop off your trees now through Jan. 27 west of the intersection at Highway 93 & Golden Gate Canyon Road.
Please place your tree near the sign posted for tree recycling. Trees must be stripped of all ornaments, hardware, strings of lights and tinsel. This is for live trees only. The trees will be turned into mulch, which will eventually be available for free at the public pickup site on 11th Street, just west of the Clear Creek History Park.
For further details, contact the City of Golden Forestry office at 303-384-8141.
Golden, Colorado is rich with culture, outdoor activities, scenic beauty, thriving businesses, and friendly people, but the City’s origins are largely thanks to another valuable resource – gold. A small amount of gold discovered in Clear Creek attracted the area’s earliest settlers in the mid-19th century and Golden City quickly became an important supply stop for gold miners seeking their fortunes in the adjacent mountains. Farmers soon discovered the rich soil in the valley that is now home to the Coors complex, and Golden City further swelled as coal mining and clay extraction industries settled in the area, utilizing the region’s ample natural resources. Golden City became the capital of the federally recognized Colorado Territory in 1862, and the territorial legislature met from 1862 to 1867 in the building that is now home to the Old Capitol Grill restaurant. By the end of the 1860s, Golden City had been elected the seat of Jefferson County and the capital of the provisional Jefferson Territory. Locals were outraged when neighboring Denver snagged the honor of becoming capital of the newly formed state in 1876, but the loss of name distinction did nothing to dampen Golden’s vital growth – business was booming. Today, with the official name of City of Golden, the town continues to thrive. It offers residents and visitors an abundance of recreational, cultural and culinary opportunities. Come live, work and play with us in our modern town with an old west flair!
