Open House Scheduled for I-70 Eagle Construction Project

February 20, 2014 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - EAGLE — As crews prepare to restart work on the I-70 Eagle Interchange project, Flatiron Constructors Inc., the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Town of Eagle will hold a public open house Wednesday, February 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Eagle Town Hall at 200 Broadway.

Eagle residents and business owners will have the opportunity to see what improved safety conditions pedestrians and cyclists will experience, as well as the improvement of traffic flow off the interstate highway and through the town. Attendees also can sign up to receive project updates and reports and are encouraged to speak with on-site engineers. Work will resume in mid-March.

The project is a partnership between CDOT and the Town of Eagle to improve traffic safety and mobility along the Eby Creek Road Corridor, including the interstate on- and off-ramps, while helping to minimize congestion. All milestones for the first construction season of the I-70 Eagle interchange project were achieved.

“This is an important project for CDOT,” resident engineer Martha Miller said. “It impacts the integrity of the interstate highway. The smooth flow of traffic will reduce the amount of backups onto the highway, improving the safety of the highway.”
