Edwards interchange open house is June 15

Daily staff report

EDWARDS — Eagle County and the Colorado Department of Transportation will host a June 15 open house to present the recommended alternative for phase two of the Edwards Interstate 70 interchange upgrade project. The meeting will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at Battle Mountain High School. Those interested can attend at any time — there is no formal presentation scheduled.

The project includes roadway improvements along the Edwards Spur Road from Miller Ranch Road to U.S. Highway 6, including the intersection. The recommended alternative proposes a roundabout at Highway 6 and widening the Edwards Spur Road to include four lanes and a pedestrian path.

The design was selected following multiple public meetings and input from user groups including residents, businesses, cyclists and pedestrians.

Planning and design for phase two is being funded by the department of transportation, Eagle County and the Edwards Community Authority. Environmental documentation and final design are expected by early 2018. Full funding for construction of the project has not yet been identified.

For more information, contact Eagle County Engineer Eva Wilson, 970-328-3560 or Colorado Department of Transportation Resident Engineer Karen Berdoulay, 970-328-9934. Details on the project are available at http://www.eaglecounty.us/Engineering/Edwards_Interchange_Project.
