Eagle County and the Colorado Department of Transportation will host an open house on Wednesday, June 15 to present the recommended alternative for phase 2 of the Edwards I-70 interchange upgrade project.
The meeting on the Edwards I-70 interchange will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at Battle Mountain High School, 151 Miller Ranch Road in Edwards. Those interested can attend at any time, there is no formal presentation scheduled.
The Edwards I-70 interchange project includes roadway improvements along the Edwards Spur Road from Miller Ranch Road to U.S. Highway 6, including the intersection. The recommended alternative proposes a roundabout at Highway 6 and widening the Edwards Spur Road to include four lanes and a pedestrian path.
The design for the Edwards I-70 interchange was selected following multiple public meetings and input from user groups including residents, businesses, cyclists and pedestrians.
Planning and design for phase 2 of the Edwards I-70 interchange is being funded by CDOT, Eagle County and the Edwards Community Authority. Environmental documentation and final design are expected by early 2018. Full funding for construction of the Edwards I-70 interchange project has not yet been identified.
