EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – Repaving for Interstate 70 on a eight-mile stretch between Eagle and Gypsum will being Sept. 21.

The work, a $3.3 million project, will take place between the interchanges and including repaving of the on- and off-ramps.

“This section has been in need of a pavement rehabilitation beyond maintenance repairs for some time,” said Martha Miller, the Eagle-area resident engineer for the Colorado Department of Transportation. “We are very glad to be getting this work underway and completed prior to the weather impacts of another winter season.”

During the work, motorists will encounter closed lanes and delays Monday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on some Fridays, from 7 a.m. until noon. To accommodate rush hour, there will be no impacts to traffic on the eastbound on-ramp from Eagle from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., and no impacts at the westbound off-ramp into Eagle from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
