Centennial news in a hurry

Justice Center under construction

A large construction project is underway at the Arapahoe County Justice Center, 7325 S. Potomac St. in Centennial. The project will connect the lobbies of both courthouses, and will include two security screening stations with a centralized entrance in the middle of the campus.

Construction is expected to delay entrance into both courthouses and visitors, jurors and staff are encouraged to allow for extra time to clear security. The grass courtyard between Courthouse I and Courthouse II will be closed during construction and is expected to remain closed until January.

Splash Dash slated

Drennen’s Dreams, a nonprofit organization that supports pool safety and community youth programs, will host its inaugural Splash Dash family 5K fun run on June 9. The event will begin at 9 a.m. at Arapahoe High School, 2201 E. Dry Creek Road in Centennial, and is open to all ages.

Registration is $25 per person before June 7, and $35 per person on race day. Not a runner? Then come for the pancake breakfast at just $5 per person. Volunteers are needed. For more information, contact Melissa McGarvin-O’Melia at 303-489-7440 or at macomelia23@gmail.com.
