    South Ward Street Reopening This Fall

    South Ward Street, west of South Simms Street, will reopen this fall. The closure is near Foothills Park & Recreation District’s campus. Since early 2014, patrons of Ridge Recreation Center, Peak Community & Wellness Center, Edge Ice Arena and Meadows Golf Club have been accessing the area from the west through Coal Mine Avenue and Ward Street.

    Century Communities, the contractor working on the project, has recently informed the county it plans to complete the project by Sept. 1, 2014. The public will then be able to use Simms Street to more easily access the golf course, ice rink and recreation center. The westerly access will remain unchanged and open to the public.

    In 2012, the county entered into an agreement with Foothills to reconstruct Ward as part of the Foothills Campus Subdivision. The future subdivision will have more than 80 single-family homes north and south of Ward. The land development company, Century Communities, has experienced several delays in completing the improvements on Ward by its May 1 target date. Delays included utility work, expansive soils and a wetter than usual spring.
