Still noisy in East Vail

Neil Muncaster

Once again the Town of Vail and the Colorado Department of Transportation have given East Vail the short end of the stick. They ended the “quiet” I-70 paving job just as they got to our area, where the vehicle noise is the worst in all of Vail, not only from the pavement, but also from trucks “jake braking” as they come down the hill to the East Vail exit.

CDOT, with their usual wisdom, put a sign at the top of the hill telling the trucks to resume speed. All those signs that say engine mufflers required are a joke and a waste of money. The police department’s method of enforcement is to wave hello to the truckers.
