Edwards roundabout completion delayed
Vail, CO Colorado
EDWARDS, Colorado – The new Edwards roundabouts won’t be completed until December, project officials say. The original scheduled completion date for the project was Nov. 19.
“It’s not the contractor’s fault and it’s not CDOT’s fault,” said Jody Randall, the project’s public information officer. “There were some conditions that caused us to have to reapproach things differently.”
The eastbound off-ramp, which had been closed as part of the project, is expected to reopen Saturday.
The project, which will put four roundabouts around Edwards’ Interstate 70 interchange, was funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, the multi-billion-dollar federal “stimulus” plan passed in early 2009.
The contractor on the project is American Civil Constructors of Littleton.
