Edwards Interchange Project


I-70G Edwards Interchange Upgrade Project Phase 2 (Edwards Spur Rd)

Eagle County and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) are collaborating on the design of phase II of the I-70 Edwards Interchange Upgrade Project in Edwards. The project encompasses roadway improvements along the Edwards Spur Road from Miller Ranch Road to U.S. Hwy 6, including the intersection. The design effort will follow CDOT’s “I-70 Mountain Corridor Context Sensitive Solutions” process, which incorporates public outreach and open houses to solicit input.  A project leadership team (PLT), comprised of transportation experts and community stakeholders, will assist in leading the design effort. PLT meetings are open to the public. 

Outcomes from the design process will include traffic analysis, environmental clearances and final construction plans for phase II. The effort is being funded through $250,000 in Eagle County road impact fees and $250,000 from the Edwards Community Authority, to match a $500,000 contribution from CDOT.

Phase I of the Edwards interchange project was completed in 2011 and included four roundabouts between Berry Creek Road and Miller Ranch Road. Final cost for the design, construction plans, environmental clearances and right-of-way acquisitions for phase I totaled $1,015,000, which included a $340,000 contribution from Eagle County, $340,000 from the Edwards Community Authority and $335,000 from CDOT. The project was built with $9.5 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.
