Vail underpass work schedule, traffic impacts: May 22-25
VAIL — Here’s what’s on the next several days’ schedule for work on the new Interstate 70 underpass project in Vail, weather permitting. Work on the $30 million project is expected to continue into November of this year.
• There are scheduled right shoulder closures along eastbound I-70 from May 22 through May 25 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day.
• From May 22 through May 25, single-lane closures are scheduled along South Frontage Road to the west of Westhaven Drive, requiring head-to-head traffic and the use of flaggers to direct traffic from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Single-lane closures are also possible on North Frontage Road to the east of Lions Ridge Loop during the same time period.
The valley’s commercial and residential property markets are similar in some ways — availability is tight and nothing is what you’d call “cheap.”
