Open house will discuss East Vail interchange

Daily staff report

VAIL — An open house is planned from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Town of Vail Municipal Building to discuss proposed water quality projects and potential landscape improvements for the East Vail I-70 interchange.

The town has received a grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation for this project, as well as water quality improvements for two additional areas — beneath the I-70 bridges near the Gore Creek trailhead and the lower runaway truck ramp.

During the open house, members of the public are invited to stop by to discuss the project goals, constraints, opportunities and the project schedule. The displays will be located just outside the Town Council Chambers in the municipal building.

Following the open house, next steps include an update to the Town Council later in the day and development of conceptual plans for review by mid-July.

The East Vail interchange improvements will be the first large-scale project to be implemented as part of the Restore the Gore effort. Construction is anticipated in the spring of 2017.
