IMPORTANT WEST VAIL ROUTE INFORMATION

What:

This I-70 Underpass construction phase includes extensive work along the North and South Frontage Roads — the roads will be excavated and lowered, including the relocation of utility lines, construction of a new storm sewer facility and retaining walls.

 

Impact:

Frontage Roads will use the configuration shown above and will function as one-way traffic only though the project site. The traffic flow will mirror I-70 — the North Frontage Road will be westbound only from Lion’s Ridge Loop to Timber Ridge, while the South Frontage Road will be eastbound only from Cascade Resort to Cascade Crossing. To accommodate, the Town of Vail will add buses to the Frontage Road routes giving patrons a bus every 20 minutes, from 6:00AM to 12:52AM. The last bus will leave Concert Hall Plaza at 12:52AM. People will need to use the pedestrian bridge to Sandstone School bus stop or the in-town bus to the Vail Transportation Center for 2AM service.

 

When:

This configuration will be in place 24/7 until mid November.
