An open house is planned from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 19 in the Town of Vail Municipal Building to provide an update on proposed water quality projects and potential landscape improvements for the East Vail I-70 interchange. The conceptual plans are being made possible by a grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation for this project as well as water quality improvements for two additional areas - beneath the I-70 bridges near the Gore Creek trailhead and the lower runaway truck ramp.
During Tuesday’s open house, members of the public are invited to stop by at any time to review the proposed landscape and water quality improvement concepts and offer feedback. The displays will be located just outside the Town Council Chambers in the Municipal Building.
Following the public feedback session, next steps include an update to the Town Council to provide an update and affirm the design direction.
The East Vail interchange improvements are the first large-scale project to be implemented as part of the Restore the Gore effort. Construction is anticipated in the spring of 2017.
