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.
