Answerland: Hazardous materials in Vail

Tunnel through the Vail Valley ” if this project proceeds, how would the hazardous trucks get through the valley?

Tom Kassmel, engineer for the town of Vail, said he believes hazardous-materials-carrying trucks would be able to travel though the proposed tunnel as long as there is sufficient ventilation and fire-supression capability and other necessary regulations are met.

The reporters at the Vail Daily will do their level best to find answers to questions you might have about life in our fair valley.

Is a pothole on your street swallowing large dogs and small cars? We’ll try to find out when the repair crew is coming. Are people speeding in the local school zone? We’ll ask the local police what they can do. Is that building going up down the street really going to be another Starbucks? We’ll see what we can find out.

E-mail your questions to, and we’ll get right on it.
