470 and Golden

So I'm new to the area and have found Golden a reasonable place to retreat to that’s within driving distance daily. I was looking at 7 news website and noticed the discussion of the 470 extension. What’s the plan precisely and how would it affect Golden and more specifically Cleer Creek and the Whitewater Park? I have grown fond of an afternoon paddle and beer at GCB and hope it would not affect things too much on the water or town. Any input is good thanks.

Basically they wanted to run a toll road through Golden where Rt 6 and Rt 63 exist now. You would have to pay a toll to get from Boulder to Golden. It doesn't look like that will happen. The toll road will now end 5 miles north of Golden in the Arvada part of Rt 63. Arvada will be developing their section of rt 63 with houses, high rise offices and shopping strips so in the future you will have to see all this crap when you drive between Boulder and Golden.
