As part of the I-70 Vail Pass Auxiliary Lane study, the Colorado Department of Transportation is hosting a public meeting on Thursday, Feb. 13 to explain the project’s noise analysis process and share the results.
The meeting will be held at the Vail Golf & Nordic Clubhouse, 1775 Sunburst Drive, and will be focused specifically on traffic noise in East Vail. The meeting will begin with a brief presentation at 5:30 p.m. followed by an open house until 7 p.m.
Residents and property owners of East Vail are encouraged to attend. The boundaries of the noise study extend from the East Vail interchange at milemarker 180 to the Vail Pass rest area at milemarker 190.
Meeting materials will be available on the project web page www.codot.gov/projects/I-70-West-Vail-Auxiliary-Lanes beginning Feb. 24 for those unable to attend the meeting. Visit the project web page to join the project mailing list or submit a comment or question.

About the I-70 West Vail Pass Auxiliary Lane Project
The Colorado Department of Transportation is conducting an Environmental Assessment study to improve safety and operations on I-70’s West Vail Pass.
Following two public meetings and extensive coordination with local, state and federal agencies and stakeholder groups, a Proposed Action has been identified. Proposed improvements include an eastbound and westbound auxiliary lane from the East Vail exit to the Vail Pass rest area on I-70. Preliminary design and technical analysis of the benefits and impacts of the improvements has been occurring over the past year.
Findings will be documented in the EA report, which is expected to be available for public review late this summer. Final design and construction will follow as funding becomes available.
