Pile driving has been completed.  We are in the process of removing the crane and pile hammer.  Once that is completed, we will begin setting up for the installation of the concrete sound wall panels.

Construction of the new sound wall along the Silver Plume on-ramp to westbound I-70 began in October 2019. This on-ramp is currently closed while sound wall panels are put in place to improve safety, functionality, durability and aesthetics. This project is scheduled to be complete in June, weather permitting.

While the Silver Plume westbound on-ramp is closed, drivers will be detoured along Silver Valley Road to the westbound I-70 on-ramp in Bakerville.
