I-70 Vail Underpass Town Council Walk

Construction on the I-70 Vail Underpass project is on schedule and the Vail Town Council had a chance to see progress firsthand during a recent site walk. The frontage roads on either side of I-70 are being lowered 15 feet and 70,000 cubic yards of dirt will be removed to create the underpass which will increase pedestrian safety; improve trail connections; reduce congestion at the I-70 and Vail interchanges; and provide quicker access between north and south Vail for emergency and utility services, as well as local traffic.
