EDWARDS – Work is underway to resurface 9 miles of I-70 between Edwards and Eagle-Vail. The project will continue through early October.

Crews are paving all lanes of the interstate between mile markers 164 and 173, as well as installing a new concrete barrier. The new 4.5-foot barrier ” the existing is 3 feet high ” will serve as a “glare screen” to reduce the impact of on-coming traffic headlights.

During working hours, motorists can expect single-lane reductions in either direction, a speed limit reduction to 40 mph, and delays of 10 to 15 minutes. Crews work from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and until noon on Fridays, with the exception of rush hours. There are no lanes closed eastbound between 6:30 a.m. and 8 a.m.; and westbound between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to accommodate peak travel.

For updated information on lane closures across the state, travelers can log on to or call 511 from anywhere in the state.
