Road work to cause delays in, near Vail

Daily staff report

VAIL — Aside from the underpass project between the main and west Vail Interstate 70 interchanges, the Colorado Department of Transportation has a couple of other projects in the area.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, work on a new truck chain-up station will close the right shoulder on eastbound I-70 between the main and east Vail interchanges. Crews will also have the frontage road reduced to one lane. Motorists can expect delays of up to five minutes, and flaggers will be on the road.

On Vail Pass, work will begin Wednesday on a barrier and bridge rail replacement project between mile markers 180 and 186. That project next week could result in lane closures in both the eastbound and westbound lanes.

All the projects along I-70 in Vail will last until 2017.
