Vail Daily letter: Restrict semi traffic

Having lived here for 16 years, the issue of I-70 traffic has remained major. The typical response has been to do another study. Now, I-70 has deteriorated so that the right lane is dangerously rutted by semi-truck traffic. CDOT is doing some asphalt repair but not nearly enough. What I do not understand is why a moratorium on semi truck traffic from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Sunday is not done. Seems a simple solution to a difficult problem. Could it be a political issue with the truckers?
