The I-70/Horizon Drive Improvement Project is a 12-month construction project located on Horizon Drive at the interchange with Interstate I-70 (Exit 31) in Grand Junction.  Details of the project include the construction on Horizon Drive of two modern-style roundabouts that will assist in improving traffic flow and safety, as well as adding environmental aesthetics to the area. Additional construction improvements include ramp upgrades, concrete sidewalks and gutters and re-surfacing.  A new access route for the Grand Junction Visitors Center along Visitor’s Way will also be created. The Horizon Drive Business Improvement District has commissioned the creation and installation of six horse sculptures to the completed product, with the purpose of providing a cohesive look and feel to the area.
