Vail’s South Frontage Road restriping begins Monday
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL, Colorado – Work will begin on Monday to realign the roadway striping on the South Frontage Road in Vail to the Intermountain neighborhood. The current striping configuration consists of a 10-foot bike lane along one side of the road and no shoulder on the other side.
The 10-foot path, which serves as part of the Gore Valley Trail, currently requires that westbound bikers ride against vehicular traffic, with only a white stripe delineating the lane. The new striping configuration will create a 6-foot shoulder on each side of the road with 11-and-a-half-foot vehicular travel lanes. Between Stephens Park and Kinnickinnick Road east, the shoulder will be up to 9 feet wide to accommodate local pedestrian traffic to and from the park.
This project is partially funded by a grant from the ECO Trails Committee. The annual ECO Trails Grant program assists Eagle County governments with repairs and safety improvements on sections of the Eagle Valley and Gore Valley recreation trails. The town of Vail was awarded $6,324 towards the restriping project.
It is anticipated the work will be completed in one or two days. For more information, call Gregg Barrie in the town’s public works department at 479-2337.
