Vail Pass bike path is open

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – Colorado Department of Transportation maintenance crews cleared snow piles with the use of loaders, snow blowers and plenty of man-hours over the past few weeks. The west side of the Vail Pass bike path (from near the summit at mile post 189 down to mile post 180) was opened Tuesday. The east side had already been open.

“Our crews will continue to sweep and we’ll do our best to keep the path open – it all depends upon the weather,” CDOT Eagle Area Maintenance Supervisor Jim Achatz said. “We’ve used the snow blower for the past week and a half moving drifts up to 15 feet high – this has been a big deal.”
