01. Why will Simms Street be closed until fall 2024?

Jefferson County, Westminster, and the developer looked at all possible alternatives to avoid such a long closure.

There will be over 20 feet of cuts in the roadway. Also, two separate water and sanitary systems will be installed seven to ten feet below the new grade of the road.

It is not safe to have the public travel through this type of construction work.

Also, in the spring of 2024, the airport will be working on a new taxiway that will cross the old Simms alignment. The old Simms will not be the same once the new Simms alignment is opened.
