EAGLE COUNTY — Work continues on the resurfacing project on Interstate 70 between mile markers 147 and 164 (from Eagle to Edwards). Paving operations began Monday and will continue daily through mid-June. The project is currently on schedule and will be completed by August.
Due to the recent spring moisture and changing temperatures, drivers through this work zone may also experience uneven road conditions, especially on bridge decks. Crews are working to address these conditions and as a result have reduced speed limits to 55 mph in several areas as well as 40 mph in the construction zone. Traffic fines through this work zone have been doubled.
Work is scheduled on the project from Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through June 20, with allowance for eastbound commuter traffic from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. daily. Allowances will be made for westbound commuter traffic from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily and between 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Fridays. Night work may be planned after June 20 but holiday and weekend work will be limited.
