Frontage-road paid parking not yet ﬁnalized
VAIL, Colorado – The town of Vail is awaiting approval from the Federal Highway Administration over a pilot program that would charge people to park in certain areas of North Frontage Road.
The Colorado Department of Transportation told the town that it needed to charge parkers in specific areas, so the town’s parking task force came up with permits and prices mainly for town employees and construction workers. The program wouldn’t affect the free overflow skier parking on South Frontage Road during peak days.
The Town Council couldn’t approve the program Tuesday because it needed final approval from the Federal Highway Administration on the agreement between the agencies. The decision was tabled until the Town Council’s Dec. 1 meeting.
