Vail interchange study open house is Monday

Daily staff report

VAIL — Representatives from the town of Vail and the Colorado Department of Transportation are hosting an open house from 4 to 6 p.m. on Monday at the Grand View on the third level of the Lionshead Welcome Center to discuss the Vail I-70 Interchange and Crossing Study.

The study is being used to establish a vision for improving the Main Vail and West Vail interchanges along with improving connectivity and the ability to cross I-70. Past planning efforts have identified possible interchange improvements as well as a new additional crossing of I-70 between Main Vail and West Vail near the Simba Run condominiums to improve connectivity for vehicles, pedestrians and transit.

The open house on Monday will present an update on the Planning Environmental Linkage study which will be used as a basis for future design and construction if funding becomes available. The open house will be a drop-in format where participants can discuss the study with town staff, CDOT staff and the project consultant.
