Golden Ponds Closed Through December 15; Sunset St. Bridge Planning Underway

Golden Ponds District Park is scheduled to remain closed until at least Sunday, December 15, depending on the weather. Contractors are working in the park to repair flood damage. In addition, the City of Longmont has entered into an agreement with Boulder County to serve as the lead agency responsible for the design and construction of the Sunset St. bridge. It is anticipated that the design process for this project will be initiated just as soon as funding options have been determined. Assuming that funding options are determined in a timely manner, it is feasible that this bridge could be constructed by the end of 2014.
